I still haven't caught an Arctic Char - and until they are more established I'm not going back.
Talo. let me know if want to catch one. I'm happy to share some info. I was getting into them pretty consistently this season. Caught a few between 18 and 20 inches.

What I was saying: I don't give a chit about 12" kokes (and I voted "no"). They might as well be suckers.

Opry99er Taimen would thrive there, I believe... They would certainly do in the koke fishery though. Those things fully grown could eat 10 pound Lakers like they were fingerling bows.

The Denver Post outdoor editor Bab Saile wrote about the big Browns caught at night on floating Rap's back in the 70's, so I tried it once. Put on the waders went out chest deep at the ramp and joined the 20 other guys out there that night. Caught one 18" lost another, heard of one other fish caught that night. Haven't been back.
