Another Lad's first fish, caught all by himself.

I suggested we let it go... and not kill it, But said your fish, your call.

There was no question, no discussion, we're eating it he said.

Just got back from an eastern sierra trip. My wife Yvonne caught and released this lunker...the biggest rainbow trout I've ever seen caught. It bottomed out my 15 lb. scale so I took measurements: length 35 inches, girth 21 inches!

That is one big fish. Alpers ranch? Sadly I'm trying desperately to figure out the location by the reeds in the background. You've given so little to go on. lol Either way that's twice as big as any Bow I've ever landed. Nice work Yvonne.

Here's another shot...looks small in the photos compared to real life.

She caught it on a size 14 callibaetis nymph.

That hog is hugest! I thought my all-time big rainbow at around 10 lbs. was huge.

After getting skunked the first three days of the trip it was a delight to catch this fish of a lifetime. I prefer the underwater shots, although you lose some visual reference to judge the size of the fish. I am lucky to have Bob to wrangle the fish for me. Stimbo, that is a great underwater shot you got. That is hard to do on your own.

I'm not much of a fishermen but I thought you East Side trout lovers would enjoy seeing this photo. My dad was a fly fishermen and way back when we'd go to Hot Creek. The old cabins can be seen here in the mid 50's, my dad caught this one and ate it!!!

Nice Bow Yvvone.

Looks like an Alpers "Pig" for sure.

The Little guy below don't get no bigger than 8". It is a confirmed very very rare White/Glass Mtn Paiute Cutthroat. Only found in two creeks on the North side of Glass Mrn and in one very isolated/obscure creek on the eastside of White Mtn.
