a 22" rainbow in AZ after 1990 ? that was the first clue. and i'm sure there isn't a lake that reequires a 7 mile hike, let alone 17. great story, and thanks for the chuckle, but now i'm really feeling guilty for living in trrout mecca (MT) i lived in AZ long enough ago that there actually were a few 20+ trout, although that was lees ferry. used to be a couple payfer lakes on the res. that had some big stocked apaches. the most memorable fishing tho, was smallmouth on the black river. i hope they didn't pave any rods into there. its a great place to fish in the buff AND see some bears.
