I bet hooking into that was a rush. May I ask what style of fishing you were doing when it hit? Nymphing, dries, or streamers?

Just out of curiosity, were you above or below the Park line, and what did you catch in on, and what time of year?

I didn't think there were any browns in that watershed?

flyred06:I weighed the fish in a produce scale down here at the store with 3 witnesses[me,my father in law,the guy running the store].It weighed 7lb 4oz done the math just to see came up with 7lb .0573438oz but the scale said 7lb 4oz.

Plateau Angler:Thanks I wouldnt know how to act if I caught as many Big Fish as you do.

milligan trout degree:Small fly rod 4lb test weighted dry fly fishing deep.

bugg:In the park just above the first parking lot,Peacock body dom.hackle,Aug.

Labrador:Ive caught 2 in that same strech,The other one was a 19-3/4" female.My guess would be they came up from the Pigeon.

Sweet, thanks for sharing info. Weighted dry fly, technique most likely too over-looked.
