    I have one hour left to decide what to do tomorrow...I hope my care knows which direction to go, cause I can't decide. Man I hate these kinds of dilemmas!

    Why waste your time on the fish of a 1000 casts when you can catch brown trout quicker and easier.

    If the trout are right around 20", take the steelies. If the trout are 25" and bigger, take the trout b/c that enters fish-of-lifetime territory.
