    Whitefish back home salvaged many a boring winter day . . . and they're excellent out of the smoker!

    When nothing else was working and the day was coming to an end, a stone fly nymph under an indi would always bend the rod at least once so I didn't go home bageled. Love those guys.
    In the summer, you can get them up top on a certain river here and it's so cool to see them ghost up to just under your fly, slowly turn upside down and then sip before dropping down and turning right side up. Really soft and subtle and sneaky yet sort of graceful.

    Strangely, I don't see those in my area, just lake whitefish.

    One year after 7 days on Kelly Creek the ladies threatened us with Hamburger Helper if we didn't bring back some fish. A float from Kelly Forks about 4 miles downstream produced some whiteys in the 21-23'' range-enough for everybody.

    Well,I catch many white fish But damm few 20 inch browns in streams. I'd be willing to trade you the info on where the whities are at for the location of a few large brownie locations. Deal or no deal?

    I always get them with a black copper john hot bead. I have eaten one whitefish, fresh out of the creek. It was a lot of scaling, but worth it. I fried it, they don't need to be smoked if you eat it right away. I like whiteys too much to fill my freezer, let these native salmonids fill their spot in the ecosystem.
