The ride out was much better than the ride back, if you've been following threads I've posted since getting home you know what I mean by that.
This was a look at Foraker & Denali when I exited Upper Barge Out onto the Yentna River. Denali on the right;
It was about 45* and clear, a glorious day to be traveling through the Interior River Systems here.
This is my friend Chris with a nice rainbow, the net opening is 18" long.......
Most of the fish caught were in the 18" range with some over that. What was really something was how thick and fat they were. Look at the girth just behind the head on these fish....
This was my largest fish, we figured it at about 2 foot, a real bag full for the net. Check out how thick all the way to the tail!
An evening fish, again, look at how thick they were! Wow,
A couple shot underwater.
Another of the evening catches;
These were taken one evening when I was out alone.
Looking up river;
This is a shot of one of those trout putting a bend into my 13' #8 Hardy Marksman rod. This was Chris's first time Spey casting. He caught on quick and is hooked for sure. I would have left him that rod but I will want to use it next week for steelhead.............
