We didn't venture as far off the beaten path this time, but the conditions seemed perfect. Good flows, water temps below 60, and we never saw another fisherman on the river or walking by our campsite. Results... dink city. We caught a few tiny rainbows. I hooked and didn't land one MONSTER of a 12 incher. He did have a super wide red strip on his side though. Beautiful.
However, the fishing is about to be on fire out West (no morbid wildfire pun intended). Hopper time.
