    Default Any opening day reports from the A?

    Come on now...I saw about a hundred people out there today...there has to be some rolling in.

    Justin, if you're reading this, nice to see meet you. And not to piss you off too bad, but from that spot--it took 10 casts, not the 5.....

    I went to a secret stretch of the Lower American River with my new carbon fiber 17' #3 line Spey rod.

    After making a 133 foot cast, I did some kind of fancy line manipulation and there it was.....a 21# chrome bright Sea-run Rainbow trout.

    After dozens of jumps, grey hounding like a marlin, I was able to subdue this monster.


    As I was just getting ready for a photo my alarm went off and ruined it all.......

    Hardware fishing buddy and his 10 year old son each got one over 22" - one wild, one brat.

    My son and I took a walk south of Sailor bar today. I still need to buy my lisence so this was just to scout the area today. Lots of folks in the water. We saw many salmon flopping around and a few Steelhead jumping completely out of the water. I'm excited for the chance to finally fish the swing this year. We did not stay long so did not see any caught.

    Well after 9 weeks and way more than 120 hrs on this River I latch into two adults one broke off after stripping out all my line and half my backing the other is pictured here a beautiful wild fish the hopefully will breed for a couple more years appears to be 27" or more. A brute that took 30 mins to land
