My first fish of the year turned out to be an incidental bull trout, nice at about 22" long, but skinny as an axe handle. Well almost. I thought about sharing my lunch with it. It sure seemed like it could use a good meal, or 20 or 30 good meals.
First fish of my year was a 17” bull. Second fish of the year was 29-30” bull. I’m 90% sure it was 30 but that’s a hard claim to make without taping it. Caught jan 2nd. Pretty sure I’ve already peaked for the year.
