i had to help my mom move this weekend and was able to break free to fish a little bit on saturday evening. i wanted to go somewhere close where the fishing wasnt terrible. i decided to go to baker and try for a decent size brown (hopefully about 15+ inches). i got on the water about 5:30 and fished until 7:00. i was using my pontoon and since it was windy i decided to try a black bugger and my favorite leech on type 3 line. after about 2 minutes i caught this little guy.

after i released him i saw my fishing competition. not quite sure what kind of bird it is though but while he was paddling i saw he had a trout in his claw. not quite sure what to think about that.

i continued to catch fish like the first one and as the sun started to fall i decided to head back to my car. i "trolled" over a place i had never fished before and had this nice bow almost take my pole out of my hands. he is actually just over 16" but looks smaller because his head isnt on the measure.

overall it was a good trip for baker. i landed 6 fish but had 8 on my line for longer than 10 seconds-one threw my hook in the air and one threw it in the water. i didnt get my brown but my bow made up for it.

Good report chuckmiester !! I always wanted to get a pontoon on that res. But I didn't own one at the time...And it looks like you had good weather to fish with.. :) 8)
Good luck with the 'brown' hunting...I've heard some good 5 year old stories about the place.. :shock:

cormorants can out-fish fishermen by about 3 fish to 1. They don't practice catch and release.

Hey Chuckmeister thanks for the report. Glad you had some success at Baker, and it's good to see that there are some decent sized Rainbows in there. Nice job!
