Great fish guys!
It must be a hatchery! no adipose
Here's my biggest of 06. It was a nice buck that nailed my fly after i had lost almost every fly i had, all in one run. I lost 8 flies, and one sinktip before i caught the fish! It was the day from hell until... Sorry about the bad pic, i didn't tape him because i like to get the wild ones back asap. Most likely in the 12-14lb range
My best fish of '06.
Swinging a fly on the two-hander.
Best fish on a fly;
10 or 11 lb silver
Best fish overall;
77 lb Halibut
Nasty fish Brent:beer2:
34 inch Dean fish. Easily the hottest single fish I have ever had the pleasure of taking for a swim. I caught some bigger ones this year but this fish smoked my drawers off!!
my best fish of the year was a 13" cutt from a little lake in the foothills.
Not the largest but the coolest. Caught under a willow branch. I could not see him but I could HEAR EM !!!!!:beer1:
This 26 incher from the Yak last February. I'm told it's most likely a Steelhead. Dose any know for sure?? How do ya tell?? Sure looks like a trout to me.
uh.. thats a steelhead. pretty much any rainbow caught in a water system with access to the ocean that is over 24 inches is considered a steelhead as far as I know.
niiiice fish Patrick...my vote is definitely steel...something about that double wide tail that separates them from the big residents of that river. steelhead on that river are pretty few and far between, i believe the count above roza was 97 two years ago.
Largest bow caught while floating the Madison last June, caught some larger browns that trip but this was the prettiest fish...too bad the photo doesn't do it justice. Had a great green/red coloring to it with a beautiful kyped jaw and thick tail....very old fish.
Caught some big silvers out at Sekiu this year also but no photos of them.
My best fish thus far had been the one in my avatar, a 13-14in cutt caught on the little D in mid october. However I plan on hitting the salt pretty hard as well as doing some steelheading before the new year so hopefully I havent caught my best fish yet!:beer2:
Best fish caught down south in 2006, taken in July on a stimulator.
PS: Nice fish so far guys, good work
My best fish of 06. Not on the fly but on 6lb test spinning gear. This fish measured out at 36" and at about 20lbs.
I gotta jump in on this one also. It was the biggest I have caught to date. 34" and around 18 to 20lb's. on a six weight and 6lb flouro. Hybrid (Yellowstone Cutt/raindow)
Nice fish, easymends! I'm calling "Unfair" on Alpine Trout, and maybe Zen, too for competing with us mere mortals. Those media hoors belong in class of their own.
My biggest to hand on a fly so far this year were a couple of fat 6 -7 lb triploid 'bows from a local lake this Spring...with black/green wooley buggers. The prettiest was a 14" Bull Trout from the N Fork Quinault on a black beadhead stonefly nymph.
Best fish of the year for me was the large 'bow at the WFF gathering at Dry Falls. Caught on a 10' six weight I built, tapered leader I tied, and a chironomid I tied.
