Mates, on vacation in central Oregon. Caught about 50 of these yesterday. They are Kokanee Trout (landlocked Sockeye Salmon) that were stocked in a reservoir years ago and naturally reproduce in the rivers that feed the reservoir. They are not large, but are fantastic eating (think bright orange/red meat) and on light gear the kids had a lot of fun...we all used FRONCE 308s....mine is "pimped out" with 408 gears and handle.

Sandman, very nice catch. Looks like a fish that would give a vintage mitchell reel a good fight. Thanks for posting the pic. Best regards, Dennis2149

It sounds like you had a great day. It seems like every time I make the effort to try some new fishing grounds, it turns out sour, but I hope to keep trying.

Thanks guys, while these little Kokes are great fighters, the Mitchell UL can handle them with ease...they sure are fun on a vintage UL fly rod...
