This big hen took in the middle of a pool that I have only caught fish in on two occasions. She fought well but I had no trouble getting her to hand.
I caught two more little guys in a plunge pool before sneaking up on the pool above. At the very top there is a nice deep trough between two sheets of rock. The water at the surface is extremely turbulent, but bellow is a nice soft pocket. I knew there had to be a fish sitting there. I high sticked the Ugly through that trough about 14 times before I felt a tug. I lifted and a nice fish came splashing to the surface before running down the plunge into the next pool, where I fought it and finally wore it out. This time it was a big buck!
I kept at it, and I caught plenty more fish, and quite a few over the average size. My end total was 13, pretty good for an hour of fishing!
