Where are all the rainbows? Made an afternoon trip towards the California State Line today in search of some aggressive rainbows. The water usually gives up a few powerful fish but today was different. Over the course of several hours only three fish were caught and none of them rainbows. Early in the trip Lorin caught a 26" brown, which in itself made the day worthwhile. After searching with streamers for an hour I hooked up and landed a 27" brown and had a grab several casts before that fish. After doing some streamer experiments in the same area, Doug caught a 24" brown just before dark. The weather was overcast and these fish were on the move. It has been almost two months since the browns spawned and I guess they are set on getting their fill.
