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 up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
