I got to fish the Sylvan Dale guest ranch yesterday. I spent all day at Mother lake and caught 15 fish between 18-24". My first time there I worked my tail off to catch two... So I was pretty darn happy. I spent all afternoon in a belly boat, and needless to say, I am hooked and will be buying one soon. I've never been so sore from fishing...
Streamers, crayfish, and chironomids were on the menu all day, and even caught a brown off the top with a hopper. Managed to straighten a few hooks, and only broke off one fish(the biggest I'm sure!)
Long old Donaldson steelhead, almost to the armpit!
One of two browns caught, they were skinnier than the bows:
Beautiful kype jawed rainbow full of color:
'Typical' mother lake trout:
Special thanks to rocky mountain anglers for organizing the event. Thanks to Brian and Jesse for being great hosts too. Had a blast fishing with you guys.
