Tyler,

Years of experience will pay off on that particular stream..or trout fishing in general for that matter...be careful of the background on your fish pictures...this is a photo of a bow we pulled out of that same stream last Wednesday Measurements go: 24 inches, 8 pounds 4 ounces

enjoy.... rainbowtrout_18291.jpg

chosen,

I touched up a few of the photos, but will be more careful next time. Thanks for the heads-up.

Coly Hrap, that's a pig bow. Great to hear she's still swimming. I'll leave it at that.

ChosenValley, impressive fish. That must be a nice stream with duckweed in it, real fast current. For some reason, I have a hard time believing that's you in the picture. Looks to me like someone has fishing envy. I know if I caught any sizeable fish I'd keep it to myself-- which is why you only hear me posting about small-to-medium sized fish. If you need pointers on how to catch naturally occurring trout drop me an email and I could help you out. wink.gif

Wow! I would have had a hard time not putting that on my wall. Good luck this weekend in Roch. Ron Burgudy a.k.a. Western Days rally killer

trout mounts are replicas these days anyways, so there's no harm in releasing the fish if you want to get a mount. Just get a couple of good pictures and the measurements, and let the big girl swim another day...

C.V.,

That has to be the best looking stream rainbow I've ever seen. What a fattie! Excellent photo dude! Thanks for posting it.

I used to trout fish a lot back in the eighties all around Chatfield. Beautiful country. It sure looks like your knowledge of the area has paid off well. Congrats!

Wow...that is quite the fish! The fish looks so good, it almost looks like you are holding up a replica! Nice catch. Did photoshop help out at all? tongue.gif

I am just jealous I guess.

It's my brother that caught the fish, he's 6'2"-3", he is holding the fish out in front of him, but all good anglers know how to take a quality photo of a trophy fish(hold out, not close to body) photobucket helped with the photo, thanks tyler for the info on how to post picts.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
