    It's not as big as it looks. They are holding it out in front of themselves. I believe that the story says it was out of the Kalamth. Not to sure where that river is. Oregon or California.

    But a nice fish anyhow.

    My bet is South or Mainstem Umpqua for sure. That watershed has fish that size and bigger. He is majorly long arming that fish, it doesnt seem overly huge to me. A damn nice fish but 42x24?

    The mention of Scott Howell also suggests the Umpqua to me.
