Thompson Rainbows,Lahontans and Sea Runs

The 2018 fishing season ended with some great action! A quick 500 mile drive to the Thompson from Seattle and a stop at Trout Waters in Kelowna, BC led to some great winter Rainbow action ! Even though it was in the 20's the fish were on!! A quick stop on the way back for a beautiful Lahontan and a great outing with my friend Larry Phillips in the pouring rain for sea run Cuthroat put the icing on the cake for 2018!! Happy Fish  year!!
