    And they say steelhead will ruin you...

    Catch a carp, and plan on not trout fishing for two years. :)

    Nice job! I finally got my first brown this summer in Lassen National Park. Big monkey off my back!

    Travis,
    I've caught browns in other states before, but it was the Washington component that made it special for me.
    It was just one of those goofy bucket list ideas I think we all have.

    BTW; I spent some time fishing northern CA while there for a job quite a few years back. You are fortunate in having all those trout fisheries available down there, especially the rivers on either slope of the Sierra. Longer growing seasons = lots of bigger trout. A lot more Brown trout fisheries down there as well. Remembering this makes me want to go back!
