Fishing trip saturday 08/26/06.
6 - 7 mile hike to high lakes called Chicago Lakes chasing after Cutbows and Cutts. While driving up there, the temp was 34 degrees. We hit snow, Rain and fog. Between the three of us we ended up with 40 Cutts. Biggest one was prob a good 14 inches.. Windy and rainy we hung in there to fish .. We did spot a huge monster Trout lurking the Rocky Cliffs. Im estimating a good 8LBs. But we werent able to hook into any ourselves.

Some photos:
