Boulder Creek Report 8/29/11 – Grand Slam!
FRA Guide Andrew Zentner came back to the shop the other day with this grand slam of epic proportions.
Andy reports: “The day started off about as good as it could with a huge wild Boulder Creek Brown in the net. The fish took a small tung teaser behind a hopper on the third cast in the pool. This is the biggest brown that I have seen a client land this season. With a trophy brown under our belts I figured we should spend the rest of the day racking up numbers and going for the slam.”
“We headed up the canyon, a bit closer the falls, to start to target some rainbows. Downsizing our rig we fished clown shoe caddis with a trailing copper john in a variety of colors, but green was the candy for the bows here.”
“After knocking down a few bows we hopped in the car and buzzed up near Castle Rock to wail on a few brookies to complete our slam. I find a red Copper John really does the trick and we quickly started catching.”
“This had to be one of the better days that we had out on Boulder Creek with many fish coming to hand, a huge monster brown, and a cutty.” ~Andy
