    i finally caught my first cuttbow on the ford. it was pretty nice three our four pounds. lost like ten other ones. also on the way home me and my old man stopped at lenore for a couple minutes at one of the turn offs and saw a couple guys walking back along the bank carying a nice trout of about a 20-23 inches my dad pulled up next to them and said some thing about fishing and they just said something like "oh yeah lots of fish" .
    thanks

    Like so many of those trout, you are no longer a virgin.
    I was out there yesterday and the fishing was good.
    I went down below the lower hatchery and hooked up some lake run that were not very big (14") or so, great time in the fast water.
    Also ran into Ed that took some pictures of a fatty I hooked, that showed off for his new camera.
    Come on Ed and show us some shots.

    Aw, the fallacies of the point and shoot digital camera. Sorry to say none of the shots I took of your hog came out as the thing wouldn’t stop moving. I will concur that it was a very large fish. Great meeting you Gary see ya on the water. Next time maybe I will figure out how to capture a moving shot on my new camera.

    I know what ya mean on the moving target with the camera.
    So many of those fish have had enough stress with out me grabbing them up for a pic.
    We'll get'em next time.
    It was nice to meet you also Ed.
    We should try to put together some steel heading now that the local water is open.

    Stopped out at the ford on Saturday after blasting roosters and ducks.
    I caught one that really put the fight on, ran me down to the backing once. Great fish.
    See ya there.

    I might stop by the Ford on the way back from Spokane Thanksgiving weekend...

    It's a fun place to go every so often when you're in need of a quick fix.

    I've never seen any browns above the lower hatchery, or I should say between the two hatcheries.
    Below the lower hatchery there could be anything that lives in Moses lake.
    Years ago I caught a landlocked black mouth, down by the hwy bridge.

    Are there landlocked salmon in Moses? I would think it to warm. But then again, trout get by.

    With two fish hatcheries at the head waters of RF there could be anything that was raised in the hatchery.
    Fry get out and passed the barriers, I don't think salmon were ever planted in Moses lake.
    Met ribka at RF yesterday.
    The wind was blowing white caps up the creek.
    We all went down below the lower hatchery and hooked up with many nice but smaller trout in the fast water.
    Who said ya can't fly fish in 30 mph winds.
