George just got back from his annual hosted trip to Enchanted Lake Lodge, in the heart of Katmai National Park.  As usual, the fishing for huge rainbow trout was exciting.  Mark Seal’s 31 inch rainbow on the Kvichak was one of the four largest fish caught this year by ELL clients all year.  There were two 32 inch and two 31 inch bows caught, all out of the Kvichak.   The Big Ku and Moraine Creek also produced some fatties, in that ten pound range,  like the fish George is holding on the left.  The Brooks was red hot again this year, with lots of fish up to 25 inches, but for some reason, none of those 27-29 inchers we’ve seen in past years.     The Kulik also fished well, dishing out it’s normal high numbers of fish, with a few in the 24-25 inch class.   Next year  our week shifts up to Sept. 7-14, which will give us a crack at even more 10 pound fish in both Moraine Creek and the Battle.   This is one of our most popular trips, so if you want in,  e-mail  George at:  georgea@yellowstoneangler.com
