Is that private or public land?

I have fished some of those deep pools around the state bridge area. There are some scary fish in that stretch!

That's definitely a great day! Now imagine what a bounced nightcrawler would've done...just kidding. Probably not as well as that did today for you! A local guy ken gallegos has all sorts of 10-30 pound rainbows and browns he lands from the blue, the fryingpan, and the taylor. A lot of his pictures are at gene taylor's and sportsmans warehouse in grand junction. Seeing his pictures make me sick...a 17 lb brown is my biggest fish ever I think...and to him and other blue river regulars that's chump change. Good luck in future trips!!!
