The best single day (4 fish limit) by one person - Jeff Miller "Pennsylvania Jeff" caught these 4 fish on November 11, 2006. A 26" brown, a 28" brown, a 28" brown and a 28" rainbow.

Biggest fish by a first time fly fisherman - Michael Schmiedler had never touched a fly rod before when he caught this beautiful 28" brown. One of 4 fish he caught over 20" that day. Believe it or not..the big one got away!

Biggest Brown - Ken Strange battled this 31" brown for about 15 minutes before finally getting the best of him. He caught him on a #16 olive/brown SG-Bug.
