I was reading a report on warm water about reflections and it made me think about my fishing year this year. i have fished this year more than any other year and have caught some nice fish. also this is my first year i fly-fished outside of the uintas. i will post some of my highlights from this year. they include first and biggest fish i caught. i hope you guys enjoy.

we will go in chronological order. i started my year off with my biggest brown (almost 16") i have ever caught. he was out of the Santa Clara river.

the to my surprise i actually pulled something nice out of duck creek. my biggest brookie at 15"

then i hit scofield and was pleased with the results. this is just a portion of the fish we kept. not to mention everything we caught. sorry for the picture but we left the camera at home.

then my biggest brown from the LP at just shy of 15"

i decided to try for some grayling and ended up catching only brookies instead, but they sure were colorful.

hit the logan and tried for my first albino and whitefish. i got both but i did not get a picture of the albino. here is my first whitefish at around 16"

i still needed a grayling so gave it one more shot before the end of the year. here is my first one at 14"

and here is a different one for color (about the same size)

then i caught an awesome brook in the same lake (im guessing around 11-12")

i needed a tiger and i got plenty. here is my first at 14"

then i caught an 18" tiger which is a PB for me.

and here is a random one thrown in.

overall the year has been awesome. i have caught PB's for brooks, tigers, grayling, browns, cutthroats, rainbows, and for some specific waters. not sure if i actually missed any trout species but this year was one of, if not the, best years i have had.

It does look like it's been a good year for you !!! I was quite surprised to see the brown out of the Santa Clara. I guess it make sense though, knowing where the river comes from...

Well, good report chuckmiester !!!. :) :) ..I hope you're not saying your done fishing for the year... :?

What ?? No fishing???

That could be part of the reason I never went... :) :)

Well, good luck to ya !! The fish will only get bigger while you're away, as long as LOAH stay's home a little more often... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
