No fridge hanger but if you can't tell I was pretty excited!! I have been trying so hard to catch a Yampa Troot! I have been trying for four years during my ...more yearly visit to Steamboat for MusicFest. Also my nails are a mess. 😒
Details: Golden Rainbow Trout
Caught this 16 inch rainbow in a calm river pocket. Threw my two nymphs in the current and let them float into the calm pocket and this one slammed it. Caught 14 ...more rainbows 1 cutbow and 5 white fish. I lost one 20+ inch rainbow and a nice cutbow. Gear: 9 ft 6 wt 4 pc TFO fly rod paired with an NXT 2 series reel.
Fishin for trout and I caught my first PIKE! WOWZERS! I hooked him on my first cast using a Rapala Jointed 9 Rainbow Trout lure and in the chaos of netting him ...more and grabbing my pliers to remove the hook (my excited nerves didn’t help) he broke my line! Off he went lure and all. So if you catch a Yampa River Pike with my lure now you know! LOL
