this fish is massive.. without a doubt one of the biggest i have caught on this stream and the biggest i have caught in the past 2 years and on my fly rod. He was sitting in a small riffle where i had just caught a smaller fish. as soon as i set the hook he took off downstream and i immediately had to chase him down atleast 50ft downstream. my backing was showing and i was afraid my line would break. but in about 4 minutes i managed to bring the fish to shore, take a couple pics of him and released this beautiful giant to swim another day. also caught a few other fish today but nothing compared to the big one! will upload more pics of the trips here soon. including a few quicks ones i snapped of the big fish. these pics,like most on my phone dont do it justice. ps: he took a size 12 rubber legged bead head prince in a small riffle. and if your thinkign this fish isn't big just remember, it isn't a westlope,lahontan or even sea run. it is a resident coastal cutthroat.
