    I was in the Rock Creek Mercantile fly shop with my son last week--the owner showed us a photo of a large brown taken last week, on his computer screen--thought you all might like to see it....

    Huge. That's gotta be a Clark Fork fish on vacation, right? I can't believe that's a resident fish.

    Browns were born to be big and ugly. And that fish shows his life scars like one should

    So . . . at the risk of being called a douche again or starting a flame war . . .

    After reading the "Purdy" beach report & realizing what a cardinal sin it is to divulge beach fishing spots, it makes me wonder why it's generally-acceptable to divulge fishing locations in other states (such as my home state of Montana or anywhere east of the Cascades) since there is no Instantaneous condemnation of those doing that. Methinks there may be a bit of a double standard here. Just my observation . . .

    That being said, that is a healthy Brown.

    CLick on conditions. Scroll down to may22nd.

    Agreed, even though the fish is posted on a fishing web page. Brought that up in another thread. A few stated " It's Montana so it's cool, plus there are no secretes in today's world, so again it's cool" Funny how the same does not hold true for Washington isn't it.

    He'd have to have really long arms to do that.

    Browns run up chasing the Bows in the spring, then run up in fall to spawn. If you hit the right timing, bring your big stick!

    Rock Creek being a secret spot? Hahahahahaahahahahah

    Anyway, sweet fish. Whether it ran up from the C-Fork or not doesn't really matter. It's still a 29" Brown caught out of Rock Creek that I'm very jealous of.
