A couple of days ago I fished a west Olympic Peninsula river and caught a beautiful, fat dolly varden. It probably weighted 5 to 6 lbs. and was a "load" on an 8 wt. rod once it got out into some pretty strong current. It was hooked on a 3 inch bait fish pattern as seen in the side of the fish's mouth as I was swinging the pattern.
