Re: Biggest Trout to Hand in the Park
I caught a 15" rainbow in Abrams Creek January 19 on a 16 pheasant tail nymph in about 3 feet of swift water and have spooked a brown in the Metcalf bottoms area that is somewhere in the 28" plus range. My fishing partner caught a 20" brown in the Metcalf area and we saw much bigger fish in early December. The best time to see big fish, in my opinion, is in early November during the redd. My fishing partner and I spent the day with Tom Dole (LRO Guide) in early November and saw many large fish. The large fish are difficult to catch - they have learned to out smart most of us.
