My first thought was a large coastal cutthroat from the reservoir (which I've caught before), but there were no slash marks, so......who knows. As for coho, my brother and I saw at least a dozen between Eagle Cliffs and the Muddy confluence on various redds. A few cruisers had the fish put down in a few places, but all in all was a good day for dries.

That is definately a cutthroat. Coastal Cutts often lack noticeable slashes, but the spotting, and the fact that the maxillary (jaw bone) extends past the middle of the eye makes that a cutt. Sweett fish
well if that is a cutthroat he's one in a million. They do plants up there but I don't think they plant any cutties in that res. I have been fishing that spot for years and never have seen a cutthroat there. Rainbows and Dollies and that's it(oh yeah they did plant coho up there too). that just looks like one Sweet Rainbow buck ! the thing I like about that area is that the fish can go out to swift and get some good growth before they come back up river.Way to go Monkey Fly!
