Taylor River

After a couple of successful trips to the Lake Fork, my friends and I decided to change it up and drive over to the Taylor River.  We got up by 3:30 a.m. so we could be at the river before 7 a.m to stake a claim to the best spots.

Mitchell started off an amazing day of fishing with a 20-inch rainbow at 7 a.m., and by the time we left late that afternoon, we had landed 58 fish between the four of us--with four of those fish measuring at least 20 inches.

First fish of the day--not a bad start

Up close

Big horn sheep were coming down the cliffs (trust me, they are in this picture)

Can you spot the bighorn sheep in them middle of this frame?

Kevin with a beast of a rainbow; we landed this guy after an epic battle

Nice rainbow

This rainbow had very few spots compared to the others we caught

50% brown trout, 50% snake, 50% eel

Double Rainbow

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is at Wal-Mart?
