I fished yesterday morning in the rain with a buddy I haven't seen since last Fall. We landed 11 trout (9 browns & 2 brookies), 1 northern, and a bunch of suckers. All of the trout came on crawlers but 1. I threw everything I had in my vest...they just didn't want any artificial. This happen to me the last time I was there a couple of years ago. Weird! I finally broke down after a few hours and put on a nightcrawler too. Ended up with 3 browns between 18 and 19.5 inches. Most of the pics didn't turn out because of the rain.

Great looking fish! With all this rain, the big Browns should have the feed bag on. Now is the time to go after them before the go into hiding for the summer.

This is a different river but still big fish potential.

Anybody jig/fly makers on here want to make me some crawfish imitations that I can throw with spinning gear? I'll pay for them.

Mark, I've thought of trying live leeches, just have not gotten around to it yet.... Any thoughts on that? I am guessing that they are not used that much, and I have done well on everything from bluegill to bass to walleye with them.
