Days like this do not happen often for me. I'm not used catching so many different species of fish from one body of fresh water. In the ocean I expect this, but not in a fresh water lake sitting at 9000 feet. Hope you all enjoy the photographs. Man, I'm still riding a natural high from having such a great day last Saturday!

My target was to try and get a good sized brown. It took a lot of casting but my wish was granted. I only landed one big brown, but I'll fish all day for one fish like this.

Even before it was light enough for photos I landed this rainbow. I ended up with about a dozen rainbows.

This one was a surprise. Landing a lake trout from the shore of a very deep lake is always a nice bonus surprise. Granted it isn't huge, but it still counts.

I caught countless kokanee salmon. They aren't worth much table fare wise this time of year, but they sure are fun to catch and look wicked-cool!

Out of nowhere this little splake slammed my marabou jig. For those that don't know, splake are a lake trout/brook trout hybrid. Cool looking fish.

One of the biggest surprises of the day was this carp. Goofy thing hit three times before I finally got a hook in him. I didn't even know they would hit a marabou jig, but this one did.
