I saw a “Walter”

Fly Fishing Utah, Whites Ranch

big brown trout

 I was fishing up at Whites Ranch Sportsman’s Paradise on Friday and saw a “Walter” brown.  Even thought the weather was bad we decided to go up and huck some big and nasties to see if we could get some big trout to chase.  Surprisingly when we got up to Cache Valley it really didn’t rain on us.  We had some trout rising to some very very small bugs and caught a few on drys but most of our success did come from throwing the meat.  You are definitely in trout heaven but I think that the food they offer in the full service grill is the best part of the day.  We we worked hard all day and landed a ton of fish but at the end of the day a guy we meet that day landed a massive brown.  He was using a soft hackle pheasant tail nymph in a deep run, where most of these monsters live, and hooked him and brought it for a trophy pic.  Even though I didn’t catch this Walter it was great to see it.  I love fishing to all size and shapes of fish but this fish just motivates me to get out and hunt some big browns this Fall.
