I caught and released one 6 inch rainbow trout and caught my second dolly varden trout in the river. This one was 7 inches long. The previous one I caught 7 years ago was a 12 inch fat one. Not sure where all the cutthroat trout are that people have been raving about in the river right now. Also not sure where the big trout are in here, but I have never seen one. Lots of people fishing for salmon right now, it seems people have the itch bad this year.The river is very low.

There are some beautiful cutthroat in there. I've landed one around 18 inches on sand shrimp. They are few and far between but worth the effort.

The river is low? Really? I was there last week and it was higher than I have ever seen it in Aug.

I have lived here on and off the past 14 years. It is the second lowest I have seen it. I am sure through others experiences it holds true to what each person has seen. I spent several of those summers in Iraq too so take what I said for what I have seen. I ran into a 72 year old man at the river the other day and he said everyone was wasting there time fishing for salmon because not a one would be in the river till next weekend, but people were swearing they were in the river. Again, his experience is a little longer than mine so I went with his judgment. I just hope to be 72 and still fishing the river in thirty something years.
