Went out to the river again today and braved the cold and wind and caught a couple. It was very tough fishing today. We didn't catch anything for a mile or two. I switched back to my old faithful and then hooked into a MONSTER on a little 5'4" All Star. It wouldn't fit into the net. Then Kimberman hooked into a HUGE trout. It spent most of the time out of the water then in. When he got it to the boat I tried to net it and it wouldn't fit and then came off. He caught another that wouldn't fit in the net, but thankfully we got it in for a pic. I need to get a bigger net. Here are some pics of the fish. All of them were released unharmed. Thank goodness we have a slot limit.
Kimberman's 24" Brown


My 28" Brown

I'm sure we have had pleasant conversations. Was your buddy on the river or on the bank? I think we were the only people on the river from 5 PM to 7:30 PM. I didn't see any other boats.

No fly in it's mouth.

I've fished the river 3 times so far and have fished 2 of my favorite spots. Maybe tomorrow if it's not raining I will hit another part of the river and see what happens.

But without the slot, all of those fish could have been killed yesterday. With it, one would have survived, but because of the sportsmanship of Kimberman and Model70 all survived for you and me to try and catch them ourselves.

Great job, great pics.
