Mysterious Fish Caught in Boulder!

Not a weird joke. This ain't April. I was carp fishing at one of my favorite public parks in south Boulder a couple days ago...and my sister hooked a good fish. I strolled over as she was fighting it on her 5wt and was startled at what I saw her dragging to shore. (I think she was too!) Her look was inquisitive. Bro, what the hell is it? And I had no fast answer. No answer at all. I just shook my head and snapped some photos. Later that night we did some on-line research and come to find out it is an albino Oscar. I have no idea how it ended up in a Boulder lake, maybe released from someones big fish tank...who knows? I do, however, know that they will readily eat a #6 Backstabber carp fly!
