Cedar, almost over for 2013... what's your biggest?

#5
St Croix 8 1/2' 5 weight $100, Redington GD 5/6 about $100, and SA WF line idk maybe $50? Don't have to spend much $ to catch fish... except all those hooks adorning the branches from deep nymphing. :)

I got this a long time ago between the golf course and the trailer park. Haven't seen many big ones since then with all the people I see throwing bait on the Cedar now though. I caught it on a size 18 red copper john - thought it was a sockeye initially. I taped it out at 23.75", but it wasn't a great measurement (the fish wouldn't stay still) so it could be off by an inch either way. View attachment 32024

I did wonder if it was summer steel. I don't know how to tell. If you look at the other pic (Cedar Trout 3) I posted of it (as a thumbnail only), it looks very resident rainbow like...the gold hue in the other 2 picks is the sun reflecting off it.

I did not fish it at all (haven't for a good many years), but having a great time living vicariously through you and seatlee's triumphs...those are some memorable fish to be sure.

I didn't fish it at all this year, been having a good time with smaller fish in the sky basin on my little toy of a 2-weight... :) just thought it would be fun to see pics, hear the stories, and get a sense of whether the big fish are still in there. :)

I got a couple in a row male and female eighteen and nineteen inches a few minutes apart from a walking speed run above the golf course a bit. I was thinking summer run after I got calmed down a bit.
