I've been fishing the Caney for over 15 years and I've caught about 3 times more rainbows from there than all the browns and brookies combined. And NONE of them had that strange dorsal fin.

You may have just never noticed the detached dorsal fin. Most of the time the dorsal fin will be not be as pronounced as in the picture above. I myself thought it looked "funny" and assumed it was just a different strain than what I am used to catching. I'm not really sure though. Most of the rainbows I catch are about 6-8" in the park so I don't get to see a nice big fin like that. I'll definately check next time though. Actually, I have a decent picture from a deep creek bow from about a month ago. Let's see.



Hard to tell.

I don't think I've ever caught a rainbow under 10". The only small fish I've caught are browns, the brookies were already 8"+ when stocked. Back when I was a spin fisherman I was using a rooster tail and when it came out of the water a fiesty little brown jumped out of the water and grabbed all 3 treble hooks. He was about 3".

I was useing 6x tippet because of the size of the streamer. there is not much more there than a #8 hook. I would show a pic of it but a friend swore me to keep it a secret when he gave them to me. A new thing he has come up with and if we figure it well a few times fishing we will post.

That's a FAT rainbow! Is that in the park? I like the facial expression though, shocked much?

That facial expression is adrenalin + happiness! She had taken me quite a ways down the creek and I was afraid I was gonna lose her. Good times!

ALflygirl,
Nice bow. I have heard good things about Noontootla and some of the surrounding N GA streams. I was curious how they have been handling the drought, but apparently all is well. Very Nice!
