Rainbows and Tigers and Cutts, Oh My!

When deciding where to go, we had a feeling to hit Current Creek Reservoir so we decided to follow our instincts and head out. We arrived at the lake around 10:30 am with sunny skies and a little breeze coming off the mountains. We set up our tubes and were soon on the water enjoying the great views that Current Creek has to offer. I tied on a black wooly bugger and trolled around with my fly rod. It wasn't long before I had hit after hit and soon had an angry rainbow dancing across the water on the end of my line. I actually lost several rainbows due to the fact that they fought me just as much out of the water as they did in it.  I then caught a cutthroat and today, they choose to dive instead of flying, so they came to the net alot easier.
My Father-in-law and brother-in-law on the other hand also caught a few good sized tiger trout as well as the cutts and rainbows. They caught they on castmasters close to shore. The tigers were so beautiful and one had a big hump on his back which made him even better! There was also a few guys I talked to in a canoe that landed several tigers with Rabalas.
All in all, the fishing was fast for most of the day and it turned out to be a great move to fish this reservoir. We will be hitting Crrent creek again for sure this year.
All set up and ready to go; a Super Fat Cat and two Renegades.
