Lighten up

Craig Rist
Tightening up onto a big fish in a river is a great feeling with those first few seconds of uncertainty, as to what the fish might do, as it powers off after setting the hook. Will it head straight for the nearest submerged tree or swim out into open water. Instinctively you lay the rod on its side to lead the fish away from the submerged tree, the rod nearly bends in half under the shear weight and power of this fish as it now races downstream with the flow of the river. You turn the fish just before it reaches rapids; it then slogs it out deep in the middle of the pool, each beat of the tail getting slower and slower. Finally you land a fish of around 4 pounds, what a feeling.

This report is coming from the shores of Lake Crescent.Todd gave us a bum steer  - the fish do fight.
The first fish was a 6 lb Rainbow which took half an hour to get in the boat. The second was a cracker of a brown of 12 LB that took another half hour. Vic and I were using 6 lb. leaders. 
Thanks for the info it was spot on. We are here for a few days so hopefully we will see some more action.
Regards, Rose and Vic
