Just thought I would share some of this season's delights. All fishies were returned healthy and swam away with a big smile, almost a big as mine!
The Rainbow is about 19 inches, the Brown is close to 23 and the Cutthroat is about 19 inches.
Many many many more in that size have been caught this year. It's not too late to come out and savour a world class trout fishery, all naturals, no stocked fish. August promises to be a great hopper year, yesterday (Sunday,7/29), we 3333(3 rods) caught 14 fish, all Rainbows, all on a hopper pattern, one was 24 inches, the rest between 17 to 22 inches.
Enjoy the pics. a few from last year.
Hope they all come with the post, if not, send me a note and I'll send them to Juro for posting on the Board.
