The Weber River, Take Two

Joe invited me to hit the Weber with him again and I wasn't about to miss out on the opportunity. We fished a different spot on the river from the first time we went in hopes of hooking up with some more big browns. Well, today the fish didn't want to join the party. The bite was slow all day! We had a couple of really nice browns on for a moment only to have them spit the hook. We didn't see any fish on beds today so I guess the spawn has wrapped up for the year. We ended up with 3 fish landed with the biggest going 19". The other 2 were in the 14-15" range. Even though the fishing wasn't as fast as we would have liked, it was still a great day to be out on the river! It won't be to much longer until we'll be getting out the auger and sled for ice fishing season. I'm definitely looking forward to it!

  1. Even for a slow bite, Rick, that is one fine looking Brown Trout. I am looking forward to ice fishing season also. Happy hook ups!

  2. Fast or slow, any day on the river is a good day. Good luck with the season change to ice fishing.
