I fished in town today and caught my first Klamath Redband (and probably my first Redband of any kind).

It bit on a Trout Magnet, and this is actually the first trout I've caught on one, even though it's worked on several other species.

The tape measure said it was about 22 inches, though it was moving around, so that might be a little off. The leader was actually 4# test because I was expecting only tui chubs to bite the lure, but the trout didn't make very long runs because of the cold water, so 4# was more than enough. I think the marks on the side might be from a lamprey?

Big fish! congrats,

I don't think those marks are from lamprey though. Not sure what it could be.

Best,

I've tried some rapalas, but either I was working them too fast/wrong, or the water might be a little too cold still (or probably both).
