All the fish I caught were on the leech.

What does that leech pattern look like WTF? Any pics of one?

Happy new year everyone! My brother and I set out to be the first people in CA to catch a trout in 2019. Each had one at sunrise and then he caught this 20.5” with a full tail and adipose fin (nice to see on the lower Kings).

Hope everyone has a great year on the water or rock or couch or whatever you like to be on!

Well done "crab." That looks like such a cool fishery.

Scott, here is a link for balanced leeches:

I went out yesterday (Upper Owens), it was butt cold, but so nice to be outside. The fishing generally was slow and I can guess the trout received a lot of angling pressure throughout the holiday. I managed a few smaller fish then finally hooked into a nice rainbow in that low 20" range. It was a nice way to usher in the New Year.

My congrats on you folks braving the cold & on your fine trout.

Brrrrrr!

The last day I fished in below freezing temps was 11/22/15.

Don't I look like I'm having fun?

Nice one WTF! Looks cold, but at least the sun's out!

Stripping or indicator fishing?

Can't wait to get back there.

You never want to call a fish a "fish of a lifetime" cause that's saying you'll never catch a bigger or better one, but damn, WTF, that sure is a good one!

I'll bet you'll remember that one for quite some time. Congrats.

WTF

That's a proud fish in your hands there man. Congrats.

BG,

I've caught quite a few "fish of a lifetime". I know you have as well. It just means we're living a good life and actually know how to fish. Or, in my case, I'm just really lucky. lol

After what's been done to the rivers, seeing a big LCT makes me happy. Glad there are people out there that care about it. Awesome fish...


Tahoe must have been incredible.

I think I found where they planted to brooders. Sure is easier to find the good spots when I can walk!
