This is in the vicinity of a real fun spot in a Valley which I've been frequently visiting for the past several years. Although there are no "lunkers" here, they're fun none the less! Besides, seeing trout huddled together at an inlet should make any fisherman smile!

Seeing how relatively pathetic my posting was comparitively to everyone else's, I decided to make a second post. I pulled this decent torpedo shaped 'Bow out of a lake in the same as aforementioned valley. 'Biggest' 'Bow I pulled off C&R'ing on that trip - he was a highlight! :D

Here's one from the "backcountry meeting" in July 2010. That is steve (Steelhead) catching at the inlet as we surveyed the lake for the subsequent fishing derby. That is the inlet that Mark swears he caught a 6, er, 5, er 4 lb'er. Either a really good C&R story, or hallucinating again ;)

Nice pictures, guys.

This brown caught during a very early-season trip in 2008 had remarkably few and distinctive spots:

I'm betting on the 70's?

I'd have to look it up too be sure, but right around '85.

Here's a re-post, but I just thought it belonged in this thread. Hope dead fish are PC.
