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 was out yesterday, and I agree with you 100% on the slot limit working. It has transformed the river and quickly. A buddy of mine saw you all taking a picture of one of those fish today. I didn't know it was you all, and believe it or not you and I have had some very pleasant conversations on the river, and in the parking lots over the years. That goes for kimberman as well. If he only knew who he loathed so much on this forum he might be shocked to know we always have gotten along in or around the river.

Congrats to you all on a great day, on what is becoming a good river again.

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.

He was on the bank, I did have some other buds who were down river from you all, but they may have left before you all got there.

BTW it is nice to see folks who know how to measure fish, and don't stretch them for bragging rights. Best I can tell they are dead on what you call them, and that one fish is a stud. We hooked 3 in that range yesterday on flies, but due to freak occurrences each one never made it to the net.

Glad y'all had a good day, and next time I see you at that ramp I will be sure to hide in the bushes and scare the hell out of you \:D

Also, kimbermans fish didn't have a fly in it's mouth by any chance? I got smoked by a fish about that same size right there yesterday, maybe 75 yards downstream from there, but very close.

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.
