How do you clean and gut a trout?

    Cleaning and gutting trout is a pretty simple process in the fishing world.  To scale the fish, use either a fish scaler or the unsharpened side of a sturday knife, and hold the trout by the tail, scraping toward the head.  To clean and gut, you just need a filet knife and to follow three basic steps more or less.  First, put the fish’s back in the palm of your hand a get a good grip.  Next, insert your knife into the anus of the fish (small hole toward the back) about 1/14 of an inch, slice it open and remove the innards.  Finally, pull out the long red vein and then cut out the gills.  Read the two articles below for more detailed steps.
