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.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      From Thunderbird about 20 minutes with your size motor.
