      No I have yet to get into a big one in the obey, I've seen them eating trout around River rd and up near the campground, sometimes even in the hatchery creek!

      Will looks like you should be guiding on the Obey! Great catch, I have had a house down In Weaver Bottom on the river for 12 years do you ever do any striper fishing. ...more I always have good luck on the Obey but still trying to hit one of those big stripers. You know any good spots from Butlers Landing to Celina?????

      Thanks Rob
