|By local standards this Brown is a trophy.|

We made it to a one of the huge pools and I managed a 12 inch brown trout that looked as if it came from the Owens River. If I showed this photo to anyone, they would be shocked to know that this fish came out of this dinky water. It's shocking. We moved to the next pool and it seemed the fishing halted quite a bit. Even getting dinks was proving difficult. On this pool I managed another brown that while not as big as the last was a nice specimen. It was probably 9-10 inches. I missed a few more and lost a few good ones when my tippet failed. Continuing to move upstream, Chul fished a pool where he missed a nice 10 incher the last time he was here. This time he managed to coax him to hit the fly and took him out of his slot that it called home. We arrived at the waterfall and at my second cast I managed a nice rainbow. Chul had a nice fish on until he bumped his rod on an overhead branch and lost the fish. Several casts later the hole shut down.
