Mount Washington Valley- anywhere near N. Conway, NH area? I used to fish the Ellis river pretty heavily when I lived in western Maine. I actually caught a beautiful rainbow out of that river that was so big that it broke my fly-reel; no joke...seriously...I know this sounds like a classic "fish story"...

Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

Ha- nice! I haven't been on the Ellis since the summer of 2002.

I hit the Andro once late-season in 2003; didn't have much luck but it did look like it could hold some huge fish.

Is that one you caught? The last time I attempted to take a picture of myself catching a fish I ended up dropping the camera in the water...this has the effect of turning most of the photos either green or indistinguishable.

Anyway, great fish!!

GRN- you asked where in VT I end up slinging a line; mostly around the Quechee area (first year on the Ottaquechee River). Lots of promising looking water around :-)

Check out the White; and the CT from WRJ down when the flows are 1K and under, it holds a lot of pigs!

Pic was taken last Fall, she was plump to say the least. My largest brown to date....Full of eggs for sure....Believe it or not, I released her into the shallows and 15 min later she was back on the line....I was one shocked puppy!

Get a waterproof camera - they are real cheap today, attach it to a zinger....Much easier to take fish pics when you are on your own.

I'm working on a way to attach my small digicam to a head band or something so I can take hands free videos...

The Andro and the CT south of the real high pressure areas both hold nice Bows and Browns... that's a pretty fish you got there FlyGal! Do you ever venture over to the Magalloway or Kennebago? They are BIG Brookie heaven!

Megalloway is one sweet river, indeed and some choice salmon can be had early in the spring!

I've yet to fish the Kenne. I've progressively been working out of my area in small increments....I like to really get to know the water before I move on.

That Andro brown is a nice fish, but the bows are much bigger.....I've been spooled several times on that river by some mythical rainbows using 2x tippet and they still straitened my #2 streamer hook. I'm addicted for sure!

The fish have lived on unmolested for years when the paper mills were going full tilt and the smell of cooked broccoli in the air, every stitch of clothing you were wearing wreaked of it. Most folks felt their feet and hands would be eaten off if they fish it.

So in some sweet sections, some nice trout, salmon can be had.
