    Bushwhacked in to a couple of great runs and holes but only caught one fish. Still, largest fish on any of the forks I've caught so far since I began fishing them last Fall. It hit a submerged, two-legged stimulator while stripping it through a seam. Fun on a 2wt. The fish was a little sluggish on the release though, just kinda meandering away, not in any great hurry.

    You must have tiny hands. Fish don't grow that big in the Snoqualmie.

    That'd be a fine fish from just about any river in Washington, but from the Sno, it's a trophy.

    That's a great fish for any of the Snoqualmie Forks Rivers. If you're only going to catch one, that would be the one.

    I agree with the others, that's a great fish for the Snoqualmie forks. There a few out there, but they are mighty few. Congrats.

    That's a very nice fish for up there! I was up there last Tuesday at a few spots! Water was crystal clear but still a bit high I thought. Nice work!
