Have heard a few comments recently about all the photos on our site – “Are there any rainbows in that stream?” While this has been a great year for some very, very, very big browns, those elusive slab rainbows are still around!
While the photo opportunity for a 2-foot plus brown is too good to pass and to post, there still is not much that can beat a 18-21 inch rainbow and the satisfaction of landing these hot monsters.
I still believe that pound for pound, the rainbows in Silver Creek are the hottest fish to target and will give you more than you can handle at times. Drag melting – Finger Burning – Knuckle Bustin’ – Into the Next County – kind of runs. Thank goodness they don’t have a heavy streamflow to give them another advantage.
The big browns may get the hero shots, but I’ll still take these “dinky rainbows” any day of the week, all day long.
See you down there tomorrow.
