No, it sure doesn't. I used to catch many wild rainbows up to 16" and some decent sized brookies in those days. I fished it hard back then, then got disgusted with it about 5 years ago. For me, it got to where it wasn't worth the hike back out for little rainbows.
Maybe it has improved -- I dunno.

Enjoyed the pics, Jeff. Do you know a 'piggy-back' service for those of us who can't hike quite as far as we used to?

Maybe we should design and build an all-wheel-drive off-road Scooter Chair. :D

The hike in/out is part of the fun! That stream isn't all that bad. I haven't seen anything as big as 16", but have had a few in the 12' range over the past few years. Lots of little rainbows that will hopefully get bigger in the next couple of years.

Those flood pics always amaze me.

Geezer, I will check on some pack mules :D
