The Pictures Tell the Story

I am sitting here totally stumped on what to write about this trip. I’ve started and then erased a bunch of clever lines. The words are not deserving of these fish and these places. The two spots I was able to fish with good friends for the last four days are so special to me that I really have no words to describe them. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. We started out on the Boulder Mountain where we spent two and a half days fishing all over the mountain targeting Brook Trout in some lakes and Cutthroats in others.

There were a few stand out fish that rewarded us for our hours of standing in one spot stripping dark colored leeches. Matts fish was 20 inches and close to five pounds. A size few Brookies achieve, even on the Boulder.

We left the mountain elated and headed down to Hatch. Hatch Utah is one of my favorite places on earth. Its where I went as a kid to visit Grandma and Grandpa, its where I caught my first Trout, and where I watched my great uncle fly fish which was the first person i’d ever seen cast a fly rod. I’ve explored miles of the river there and have a good understanding on where the big fish hang out. This trip did not disappoint. Each of us caught several Browns over 20 inches in a small stretch of river. This is truly great Brown Trout fishing and the rainbows seem to be doing well this year too.

A huge thanks to these guys for the great company, phenomenal photo skills, and many laughs. Can’t wait to get out again with all of you.

    nice browns you guys got into! thanks again for the tips to get started with my fly rod, the sevier there by hatch looks like it would be a great place for me to get in some more practice.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures and story. Just had some family move down to Southern Ut. Looks like I have a reason to go and visit now.
