Default Your biggest park fish

I am curious to see what others have caught in the park. I think we could all use a little more fish ****. Post up a pic of your best park-caught rainbow, brown, and brookie. I am relatively new to the game up there, but here are my largest two brookies, caught about a year apart in the same stream.



I have yet to even catch a brown in the park, and I've only caught a couple of rainbows, so my sample size isn't large there.

Those are great fish. I always wonder why the same waters produce larger than average fish. If you were going to paint a picture of a brookie it would be that first one. Awesome colors.
By the way should you be wearing a fine time piece like an Omega Fishing. Nice fish and nice watch.

Thanks. I should be ok unless there are some 1000ft deep plunge pools.

Although, I know it can take the beating, that's why I like them. Looks great with a suit, but can equally take a beating on headwater streams!

I have never really caught anything too big in GSMNP, but I mostly fish in Pisgah.

My biggest GSMNP brook, 4/29/12, sorry, I don't have a live pic.



My biggest GSMNP rainbow, 3/28/12



My biggest GSMNP brown, 4/07/10, bad pic, fish was skinny but over 12 inches

Brown:



Bow:



No brookies and these two (like most of my fish) were caught right by the road.

Most impressive, David. I've had rises from fish near this size, but can never seal the deal.
