Frank: Congrats on catching such a fine trophy! Well done indeed! I sure hope it tastes as good as it looks.

Frank, you are right, panic isn't good when the fatty attacks.
Nice recovery/fish.
Keep testing that reel...

What a great fish, at 22" long that must be 8" thick! wow. I also really appreciate the story. I am a patient man, but I also do not like to fish the same hole with the same fly for an hour without results. I will move and/or switch patterns. Thanks for the reminder that persistence, and patience, do pay off...eventually.

Side question: When I first looked at the picture I thought the fish looked like a spawning hen, but thought - it's fall - that's just a fat fish. Why would a rainbow trout have roe in her this time of the year? I have never heard of rainbows spawning in the autumn...what is going on here? What am I missing?

Dean,
They stocked 5-6 breeders in with the usual 10-12" trout. It is a hen, and it did have roe:

We ate the trout tonight, and it stuffed 3 people! We lived at the Jersey shore for 6 years (1994-2000), and once we had salmon off the back of the fishing boat, I haven't been able to eat fish that is as fresh as possible. It's just not the same. When cooking fresh meats and fish, I go very simple. This was just some margarine, and lots of lemon juice backed for 35 minutes at 400 degrees. Perfect! There was a bit of head scratching when I laid the trout next to my largest baking pan.. Whacking off the head and tail made it just fit

JP,
Yvonne is going to PT twice a week, and is scheduled to be finished in a few weeks. She has the slightest limp right now, and I only notice it because I know she broke her ankle. What a big difference 4 months makes....

I believed you Frank. My question goes unanswered, how does a rainbow trout spawn in the fall? Have biologists and hatchery managers altered the species reproduction cycles? I reckon it's the only answer, but I'd love to hear about it from anyone that knows.

Hi Dean,
I read your post too quickly. It seems that the PA hatchery folks have found a way to get rainbows to spawn beginning in August: PFBC Question and Answer - Spawning Trout, Male vs. Female
The "process of selection" still leaves some questions about what's going on...

Nice fish Frank and great story. My wife says I am impatient, until I go fishing, then she wonders if someone didn't trade in her husband. she often asks how a person as impatient as me can spend hours (especially in the winter) repetitively fishing a stretch of river.
