    It is a trolling rod but they catch all these fish on the surface...with flies. I just haven't run into anything big with the fly rod yet.

    Mind if I ask what fly it was caught on? Just curious what a beast like that went after.

    God I am jealous. I have been to that lake to wakeboard but never to fish. I can't even believe my eyes. Good on ya!

    I used to live up there. They are Kamloops Rainbows and they get huge. We used to use big bucktail flies w/scent or flatfish trolled near the surface, usually behind trolling boards that pull the flies out to the side. It usually takes many hours to get a nice one. BIG Mackinaw in that lake too...

    Insane! Any Estimates on the weight?

    We were thinking around 15 lbs. The biggest so far this year is 24 lbs. 11 oz.

    Were you trolling your fly behind some cow bells? I recall fishing that way for those trout when I was a little kid (I think we were in a bayliner or somthing). Remember there's nothing wrong with hard flies, just hard fly fishers. Don't be a thug, Dan

    Dan, I lied about the fly caught part. I actually had a 12 oz. weight with a big ol' gob of eggs and dropped in down into about 125 feet of water. The trick is to let the rainbow eat the eggs until he swallows them, that way you are sure not to lose him. Then you set the hook really really hard, somtimes you can set it so hard that there stomach lining comes out. This fish tasted a lot like chicken. And we were fishing from an 11 foot john boat circa 1965 with a one cylinder OMC on the back.

    15lbs....I was gonna say more like 25. Are you doing some big time long arming on that fish? Its so hard to tell because the thing is so huge its covering your hands. I have caught a few 10lb bows and one in the 15lb range, they were huge, but looked smaller than that.

    There might be some long arm action. I have been known to that from time to time... The fish was about 31" maybe a bit more so we guestimated the weight.

    Awesome Smile I thought that thing was a salmon at first from the small picture.
