Well, if I can count some

Well, if I can count some that I caught out of a friends stocked pond in her front yard, that they feed pellets to, then the biggest rainbow I have caught is about 5 pounds. lol If not, then it's about a 16 incher, cookie-cutter model.

Well the biggest Rainbow

Well the biggest Rainbow trout was probaly only 2-3lbs but if i can count steelhead which is just a ocean going trout than it would be 19lbs, we have some really good steelhead fishing about 15 mins from my house.

You better find a picture of

You better find a picture of that five pound 'bow crowsfoot or it's just another fish tale haha. I am just kidding. I have never caught one that big. My best was 22 inches but maybe only two pounds. Didn't weigh it. And no... I can't find a picture so mine is just a fish tale I guess too.

I never weighed em but my

I never weighed em but my bigest rainbow ever is about 24inchs and my bigest brown trout is about 28 inches. I've caught a whole lot of trout on the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan Rivers in Colorado and most of them are about 16 inches. You can get into some lunkers on the Colorado River also using a broke back Rapala.

I use floating Rapala's to catch the big boys but I enjoy fly fishing also, though I've yet to catch a monster on my flyrod.Thumbs up

Wishin' I was still in the mountains. One day I shall return there and give it another go. It'll be bass fishing in FL untill then.

Rainbows

Idunno how big the Bows are that we catch, we just bring them in, snap a few photos and toss um back. I do know they aren't hybred 30 pound hatchery fish. These are all wild Alaskan Rainbows that offer a fantastic fight.

Here are a few photos I've snapped while fishing with some of the crew I work with. When ever we get a break, we head up the river and bang a few. All the following photos were taken in the same location at the top of the Naknek river in southwest Alaska..

A triple, all released
