The long-awaited "McGee Miracle" has begun . . .

The Trout Fitter Staff

Report Date:

. . . as in 12 fish over 18" today 8am to noon for me and similar for all boats within 250 feet in both directions up and down the old stream channel.

Big Brown/Bow/Cuts all showed up in numbers and almost no little fish save a few of the 13-14" Browns planted by DFG recently.

I even got an estimated 25lb Pelican using a 23" Rainbow for bait that made the mistake of jumping right next to the Pelican. After I broke him off he swallowed it in one gulp like it was a pill. The fish was still hot so I imagine the Pelican has a sore stomach tonight.
