Stephen burns big cutthroat

My Friend and president of trout unlimited in Poulsbo , Wa was out on the Olympic peninsula and caught this beauty of 22 inches in the sol duc drainage !!

Giant Canadian brook trout

Well everyone comes to Western BC for steelhead but I found there are wonderful brook trout in the lakes as well! They were stocked at one time but they now thrive!!  After catching 7 and 8 inch fish in Michigan this summer this big fish was a shock! Estimated at 22 inches and 5 pounds it struck an egg sucking leech!!!

Pierce clegg

 I had the pleasure to fish again this year with Pierce Clegg on the Babine River , Bc Pierce is a great harmonica player and the former owner of Nor Lakes lodge , We launched his jet boat by the fish fence and he landed this steelhead on the 3rd cast, Steelhead is about covering water he says!!
