I know. Daniel told me about your day, and I said mine was exactly the opposite. However, I have never had much luck with browns in the park, don't think I have ever caught more than 2 in a day.

I fished a few different places up the trail with the closest being about 2 miles up and the farthest being close to 3 mile upstream. I did see a few other fishermen walking out as I was working my way upstream, so either I was fishing "used" water or those guys went way upstream.

I used a #12 Quill Gordon all day until the last fish shredded it, and I switched to a streamer for 10 minutes probing a deep run for a piggie. No luck there. However, I chose to call it a day, and walk away very fulfilled.
