Monster 31" Brown Caught in High Sierra Mountain Lake

31" brown trout from Craig Coston on Vimeo.

This video has recently goen viral and all I can say is WOW!! Can't say that I've ever seen or come close to catching anything like this in High Mountain Lakes. I guess I now know where I might spend more time at chasing Browns late Summer.

Craig Coston posted this video of this enormous brown trout, reportedly 31 inches, on Vimeo last week. This slob was caught in the High Sierras, on a day trip out of Modesto, Calif, at a lake with an elevation of 10,000 feet with a 2-weight fly rod to top it all off. The fish, despite its 17.5-inch girth, gobbled a small wooly bugger and was released to live a long life.

All I can say is absolutely awesome. On a 2 wt. none the less. Man I may have to make a trip to the Modesto area. That is where my wife was born so maybe I can use that to my advantage :) Thanks for sharing. Tight Lines.
