Drifted from jasper to alton baker yesterday with a friend . the water is up a liitle from normal flow ,but was in great shape. Only a few new obstructions and nothin hairy. We fished trout and a couple ponds for bass. Only had 1 bass hook up lost him at the bank , but man the trout were on fire . I really dont recall a time I have caught so many fish in 1 day. Granted a bunch were smolts but throwin a thomas bouyant made release no prob for all but a couple fish.I had several fine lookin 12-13 " fish and TT caught about a 13-14" cutthroat. What a first of the season trip.Saw only 1 drift boat the whole way down. Heres a few pics.
