A Real Trophy

The fishing has slowed to a crawl at Pyramid, but my good buddy Rich Moomaw tied into a real bruiser of a cutthroat at Pyramid the other day. His only hooked fish of the day.

Rich was fishing a Moomidge (available from The Fly Shop in Redding) about 21' under a breakaway indicator in 33' of water when this 21# fish took his fly. After a lengthy battle, this fish was corralled in a net that barely contained it. Pics were taken and the fish released to fight another day! Man what a fish!!

Shore fishing is very slow and some fish are being caught by fishers in tubes. Hopefully things pick up soon.
