Big Creek Macks and bows!!

While up Elk hunting we took a day and went to Big creek and fished. This trip Thank the lord the fishing was great cause elk hunt was cold and miserable and got skunked. We caught too many rainbow to count and got into the lakers as well. This trip I took up some family from Kansas each caught their first bow and lakers. Also we caught a three 20" rainbows and some 24" lakers.
Normally I am a catch and release kinda guy buy since I had some family from KS we kept a couple smaller 20" Mack. Most the fish where caught on the bottom with a simple worm rig. I also caught a few nice ones one a gulp minnow and jig head.

Good Luck

Awesome! How was the road getting up to the lake? Any snow packed in shady areas?
