|Missouri River Morning|
We spent the weekend in wonderful Craiglandia, Montana and it was fabulous. The trout were huge, hungry, and acrobatic. They even took my mind off my new carp obsession for the first time in months.

The trees were hanging on to the last of their color, the weather was great, and the fishing was off the charts.
A couple of nice browns were hooked in between the onslaught of huge rainbows. We fished double sowbug short leash in shallow water and could not stop catching fish. Then, I noticed some orange swimming around in the back part of a seam. I threw a streamer at it and this happened:
|Two rare occurrences, a picture of me on the blog and a huge kokanee salmon in the Wolf Creek area.|
So, I guess some kokanee occasionally make it over the dam and into the river. This was the biggest kokanee I've ever caught. We saved it from a lonely death. He's going into the smoker!
|Kokanee kype. Look at those teeth!!|
|Nose to nose.|
Fall is flying by. Don't let it slip through your hands. You've got months of football and cabin fever ahead. See you in the field!
