I've got 3 of 4 so far, I need to find time to get out to NW Utah to get the Yellowstone cut. It has been really fun so far! I am hoping to try it all in one day next year on my motorcycle.

I did a little better on the CRC's today. (but the bar was low.) Still was kind of tough fishing. At least I have something decent for submission.

Ferron Res. A couple years ago, I was in the area for a muzzleloader hunt and caught some very nice cutts out of there. Only later did I come to find out they were CRC's, which likely made them the largest CRC's I've ever caught. I went back yesterday afternoon. It was a lot slower but a few decided to take my offerings. Lost a real nice one and there are a few fat rainbows in there too.

Ferron Res was a fantastic place to fish during the elk and deer hunts. Hardly any people around and the fish were hungry.

I caught my largest ever Yellowstone Cut out of there years ago it was 5+ pounds and by brother in law caught a 4 lb brook trout out of that pond. I also had one take most of my line off of my spinning reel when he decided to go from one end of the pond to the other, I never did find out what it was.

But all that was before they drained it down to work on the dam and to get rid of the Yellowstone cuts and plant Colorado River cuts into it.

I've heard that there are still some brookies in there, but I've not caught one the couple of times I've fished there. From what I've seen, the CRC's aren't doing too shabby either in regards to body condition and size.

I also get the impression that it is a fickle pond with some good and bad days, as one would expect in a fishery with well fed fish.

Thanks for the report and pics. I fished Ferron yesterday with a buddy in our tubes, were you the guy in the float tube?

We picked up a little of everything, brookies, cutthroats, and rainbows but none bigger than 16".

Yep, that was me! Glad you had a good day. I had a little love while you two were there but you guys knew what you were doing by leaving when you did. It was tough going for a couple hours until they started showing some interest the last hour I was there.

I didn't get one over 16" yesterday but the cutt I lost probably was in/above that range. My biggest was a tanky bow at about 14 and the first pictured cutt wasn't too bad either.

The DWR treated the reservoir in 2011 to mainly to remove the brook trout that were illegally stocked. After the treatment they went back in with sterile brookies, Colorado cutthroats, and rainbows. I think the CRC came from the eggs collected from Duck Fork each year.

Your right, the fish we caught were in great shape too.
