    That's actually a big Trout. Hits both sides of the measuring tape. How big was it?

    Great fish, what part of the river is that, it looks pretty low in the system? In pic #2, does the rod behind you have a fish on?

    Second picture is just above rapids camp, still a ways from the salt, but about the end of where the river really flows like a river. No fish on the rod behind, just dangling the fly after unhooking (my dad had landed a 27-incher about 5 minutes before). First picture is a couple miles further up river. The fish took the fly straight downstream about 25 ft from shore in knee deep water. That was exciting!

    I thought it looked close to rapids camp, sounds like a blast.

    Chomped an October Caddis Dry.
    If you look close you can see the ends of the rubber legs.
    Fly came out easy with no apparent harm done in spite of the deep take.

    Im pretty new to the forum, and I live in Arizona! But this is my biggest fish on the fly. Took me 30 minutes to get to hand on my 5wt. Thanks for looking!

    And I don't know how you guys are fishing in your poor weather but it is still pushing the mid 70s to low 80s here! Fishing weather for sure! Happy Thanksgiving.

    Local ponds on the west side of Phoenix! They are stocked along with grass carp for algae managment! I started targeting them for the fight. This one took me to my backing 3 times, and every run he went on I tightened the drag a little more. He was an animal.

    As for the river, my family live in North Bend, and said the Snoqualmie is raging! I am hoping when I come for christmas I will get the opportunity to fish the upper section of the Yakima river.
