Bentelbow,
That is a great underwater shot! What kind of camera set up did you use?

That's a real monster rainbow!

Middle Kenai below Skilack Lake?

Looks like it's getting cold up there.

It has been a long while since a Large Trout post.

Here's a "little-trout."

16" Native Cutthroat from Idaho's Frank Church Wilderness.

It is all "catch & release" in there-----and well patrolled by Fish & Game, due to these streams also being salmon spawning habitat.

When I was age 17, a large Chinook chose to take my Mepps spinner on this stream. It played me for about 15 minutes, but couldn't quite get me into the water, before it tired of the game, and "broke-off."

Just got the news from the IGFA (International Game Fish Association) that this sockeye salmon I caught in Alaska has been awarded the new world record! (all-tackle length) The fish was released alive to spawn after measurements were taken.

Woohoo!

I was so inspired by the latest fish posts, that I went to the "Glory Hole" on Choss Creek tonight.

The "Glory Hole" is on a small spring creek that dumps into Choss Creek and runs through a commercial fish hatchery on the way.

The fall spawning Brown Trout & our local “hatchery strain” of fall spawning Rainbow run up Choss Creek, then end up in the “Glory Hole” for spawning, since they can’t access the jump into the hatchery.

Best fishing is just at dark, or shortly after dark.

Biggest trout I’ve ever caught, including several that were around 10 lbs: have come out of the “Glory Hole”

Of course I had it to myself tonight------and usually.

After all, who the hell wants to go fish Choss Creek in Idaho?

Especially on a 35 degree F. evening, with rain overdue?

Luckily, the wolves weren’t around.

Froze my ass, and only caught about 30 “little fish” in 2 hours.





You think I would be able to find better fishing, by driving 10 miles from home.

Sigh, he, he, he.

Wow and I was impressed with my 5 fish limit at Berryessa last weekend:


Awesome job Bob that thing is a true beauty! I normally catch them silvery and 18-20", and think they are monster lol!

NOTE: I am normally a Catch and Release guy, but the Mrs asked me to keep for a family dinner fish fry.

Not a Very Large Trout, but I had fun releasing her. Secret stream in Oregon.


Note: I eat alot of fish too, so I partake in both venues of the sport, as appropriate.
