got a tour of the hatchery then went fishing, i caught my limit in 10 min. then i helped others net their trout. we has a great time.
i saw a couple in the 30in. range but before my fly sank to where they were, 5 smaller rainbows were after it.The largest fish that we have heard about this year was 34", and caught in the snag that is ~75 yds. downstream from the pavillion, below the two big Willows. We see a few Browns cruising in the pavillion pool, but getting to them is a trick...that is getting by the Rainbows.
If I wanted to target the big fish there, I would throw Christmas tree ornament sized tinsel flies. Lotsa' flash...in the sticks. Just sayin'.
Gotta getcha a sinktip line, or some full sinking line, and a sink tip, and a lot of shot! Just throw it on a 12 wti saw a couple in the 30in. range but before my fly sank to where they were, 5 smaller rainbows were after it.
