Default Rockaway river rainbows

Well I myself have seen some pretty big rainbows caught already this year already and had the itch to fish, decided to keep it local close to home and see what the state had to offer this year. Bounced around all the well known spots and saw two other anglers. Worked the holes quick and got three of the norm size fall bows on plugs. Last spot I get to sun is going doing 3 Rd cast baaaammmm! Good fish staying in the current and I can't turn this thing with the 4'6 ultralight finally after a finesse battle I'm able to turn her and ease her to the bank. Nice big ole bow probably just over 4 lbs.

Glad someone convinced them to chew.

I saw alot of big girls swimming around on Sat. They were not interested in what I was throwing. Saw a ton of guys out.
