    Default Snow and Fat Rainbows

    After waiting over an hour for US441 to open this morning, I drove over to the reservation and chased the big fat trophy section rainbows. I caught 7 in all. Below are pics of the 3 biggest and some snow at Newfound Gap.

    First fish of the day. 21 in.


    19in.

    Whoa, Nelly! A friend told me about the special trophy waters on the reservation. I plan on wetting some fur and feathers there this spring. I just showed the pix to my wife. I'm hoping to get her there also. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey John, as much as I want to get back home down there, it looks like it will be a few weeks, so when are you coming this way? Hope we can hit this trophy section sometime, I have fished it a dozen times and it is easy and full of bruisers, I mean no offense to the folks, pics, and success posted here! plus there is some very interesting things in the works for this trophy section that will be quite unique.
    If it swims throw a fly at it!
