Had the bug, got up early headed out to my favorite lake. Was fishing by 8:30. I had a great day catching and mostly releasing fish. I C&R'd a good 15 fish today. Mostly on Kastmasters. Caught the big one on a crawler inflated. Tried roe, missed one good hit, having trouble getting it to float with a power-egg.

For the second time in 25+ years fishing Melones I caught and released a BROWN trout from SHORE. It was about as big as the rainbow in my pic, but much thicker. At first I thought I had a nice bass, then a sqawfish, when I saw color I was shocked. Already had three fish and with DF&W not planting browns in Melones anymore he got to swim free. I'm sorry no pics, my wife even tried to get me to take my camera as I was walking out the door, but all my gear was packed.

Also lost a nice rainbow on bait that wrapped my in some wood, about the same size as the big one I landed.

Peace

BUIDB
