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.

|A solid, very pretty rainbow
|A bigger rainbow
|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?
|Peter with a beautiful rainbow
|Peter with a nice brown
|Kevin with a beast of a rainbow; we landed this guy after an epic battle
|This rainbow had very few spots compared to the others we caught
|50% brown trout, 50% snake, 50% eel
|The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is at Wal-Mart?
