Colorado was Parker McCollum’s chance to escape from the public eye for a short time. He is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas. Country music lovers may have heard his hit single, “Pretty Heart.” This song was his first number one on both the Billboard and Mediabase country airplay charts.
Over Thanksgiving, Parker McCollum traveled to Colorado, where he caught a beautiful rainbow trout. He showed great emotion for this accomplishment on his Instagram account.
He wrote, “Catching Rainbow Trout on the @aughtsixranch today! This place is special!”
Thomas Rhett, a country music artist, showed support to Parker McCollum’s big catch. He wrote “Ye sir!” while singer-songwriter, Koe Wetzel jokingly commented “Dang ol road trout eat good af man,” since there was no sign of a body of water in the background.
The beauty of the mountains in the background made this moment even more special. Colorado is the perfect state for trout fishing and allows for it year-round.
The rising country star is very fortunate to be able to fish at AughtSixRanch property. However, there are a lot more lakes to fish at in the area.
