I cought this 24 inch Rainbow Trout at Green Mountain Resivor. He was in 10 ft of water I cought him on a pink power tube and meal worm. He played withme at first buy going back forth between my 2 rods I had in the water (the other rod had a pink and white rat finkiee on it) taping them and pulling just enough to get the meal worms off. At first I thought it was a real small trout when I had problems geting a hook set but when I finaly did he about took the rod rite out of my hand when he drove to the bottom and ran with it. 20 minutes later with help from my budy I had him on the Ice. After taking this picture and a few others I put him back in the water. Fun fish the biggest I cought threw the Ice.
