caught this on the yak today. not a squaw or a sucker, never seen one before.
Looks like a mountain whitefish. They get no love but I think they're great.
Yup... looks like a chub-er-roo to me.
Yeah, I suppose I don't see an adipose on that fish so it can't be a whitey.
cool, never caught a chub. ive been fishin this stretch for a long time and never caught one of any size before.
I'll 3rd the Peamouth.
Normally, I don't catch chub that large either. It may not be a good sign. You don't want chub taking over the river. I know they can become a problem in lakes. Hopefully that isn't the case for rivers.
Never seen one before, and I also might have had one on yesterday. It jumped and shook the fly about 3-4 feet from the boat, but it really didn't look like a trout.
Certain river have native species of chubs and they are sometimes on the endangered species list....
(I think of one special river that has a brightly colored chub... catch one every now and then)
The chub on the ESL are little guys (three-four inches in length) and only found in specific rivers:
never seen one that big, we used to catch them on an open swivel in irrigation ditches as kids....Did you consider having it mounted????
State record is 1.12lbs. Definitely a Peamouth.
