There are many points that could be argued but it does seem to me that the fish are a bit larger than normal. I think the most common answer you will get is that it is due to the drought. Many fish were killed, including the majority of adult rainbows, so the fish population dropped dramatically in the streams. Now you have the situation where there are less fish to compete for food, so theoretically each fish is eating more food and therefore growing larger.

Were you at the end of the road, or just along the road somewhere?

I'd like to hear more about your experience.
That sounds like an amazing day, to catch fish like that.
The black wooly buggers do the trick!
