Beautiful Lake run bad boy.
Great colors on that one. And what an intro to the urban trout scene on the cedar. It may feel a little dirty at times, but nothing keeps a trout bum going through the work week like popping in for a few and hooking up with such memorable fish in the middle of the city.
After looking at some of the pics in this thread, I'm going to have to give the Cedar a try next year.
I got a 16" on a stonefly this year. It was my first time nymphing the Cedar.
Man, those are some pretty rainbows! Most of the bows (probably cutbows) I catch look sickly compared to those.
Just started fishing it about a month ago. I'm still learning the river and how to access it and did not yet catch any of the big guys. I plan on fishing it heavily from the start of the season next year.
btw, nice pics to all who posted. Those are some impressive fish! Way to go!
18" on a small rusty hairs ear
Careful wading in early June!
No kidding....I almost met the maker a few seasons back when testing some water I had been fishing previous years. Now I go by flows to gauge when I will actually step in....that river changes so much in a year.
If you are dying to go at the opener, hit me up. I fish a lot of private access land that I have worked out, and early on there is some incredible high stick nymphing in one boulder area I spend most of June in, and wading isn't needed to hit a bunch of great holes. Jim's Cedar Stone is a weapon of mass destruction during that period with the grade and depth of those holes. I mostly fish alone, but would love company anytime.
Tinman - Would love to Ceder with you next year. I skipped this year entirely after overdoing it last summer. I also got mildly obsessed with learning lake and salt fishing.
Same 18 inch fish from a trash strewn donut hole on two different occasions, fat as could be, second time was 30 seconds after a tuber floated over. Season aint over yet, those greedy lake cutts like chasing up after the sockeye, some of whom typically are already in river in August
3 17-18" bows on a Royal Wulff, but didn't have much luck with that fly this year. Got a 16" last night on a hopper after getting a few looks at a #8 orange stimulator, decided to try the hopper and it hit hard on the 2nd cast. The Cedar's a fun river if you can find a place away from the trash. Somehow the trash finds you, though.
Here are a couple little Cedar guys for y'all......yep, I do like trout fishing.
24" on a nightcrawler using 20lb test and a big red and white bobber
geez mingo, blowin it up with those. I see a crowded cedar next year. People will fly in from all over and skip the yak all together. But seriously those are some of the best I've seen in hand, I've gotten glimpses, but no more 5x for me next year.
