It was a spur of the moment thing. We had a heavy rain the night before. Next day, Cari said, lets go for a ride and see how much the stream came up. Of course I had a pole in the truck. The stream had only risen a couple inches and was a little stirred up. A couple minutes after getting there, I had this, 21 1/2'' brown stripping line from my ultra-lite 5 ft. rod and 4 lb. test line. This is a catch and keep stream. By the end of June there isn't enough water in it to support any fish. You can cross it without getting your sneakers wet. It's, Hatchery Supported, and this fish was an old breeder. The fish and game commission puts them in here and there to give us fisherman a thrill. It's better than having them die in the hatchery of old age.
That is a nice trout Kenny.
That will be a tasty dinner.
Some people are all about Catch and Release...and that is fine. But Me!.. I am all for catch and Cook.
