    We fished in August and found a nice braided area with small channels where we actually found the biggest fish.
    Ladin saw a big fish rise and made a great cast.
    The Purple Haze floated perfectly and the fish came up bigger than life.
    A beautiful Cutthroat. Over 20 inches.

    We caught several large trout and many other nice fish. Mostly on the dry. The Elk is a fantastic River.
