    During 10 of the 12 years I lived in Montana, I caught quite a few large trout (and had many truly huge ones break off 15lb tippets) below Holter Dam at night. None of them were ever hooked with a mouse though. All of them were hooked on large sculpin (as in 2/0 or 3/0) imitations or Zonkers fished with a type 4 sinking 30' shooting taper on a 9' or 10' 8 or 9 wt rod.
