By Peter from Jackson, WY -
This past summer, in July I was privileged enough to engage upon my first float trip on Montana's beautiful Bighorn River. Upon the numerous brown, rainbow, and cuttbow trout caught this day, none of the fish fought as hard as this 16'' rainbow, my catch of the day. Lured in by a small shrimp nymph, my indicator disappeared into the water as I patiently set the hook. The 'bow put up a great fight, and I was fortunate not to lose him in the battle. Upon netting this beauty, I returned him to his home back in the river as quickly as possible, in proper catch and release form. Simply nothing compares to the beauty of the Bighorn, and the trout that occupy it. A special thanks goes out to Clark Smyth of Rock Creek Anglers for his accommodations, and fishing expertise.
