Tried my luck at the root river to catch some nice size browns and if lucky get some coho. Started from 5:15 am to 6 pm. Got 3 pretty decent browns, and one steelhead.


all of our fish.


Female brown on top, and Male Brown below. She had a lot of eggs which ill make spawn sacs out of them.


steelhead. Would this be edible? Should we smoke em for them to be ok?


My buddy Ralph

that brown on top is at least 14lbs. He was a MONSTER

Finally a BIG THANKS TO ROOTPRO! He gave me great directions and where to fish for these huge browns. I must of been annoying asking him all these questions but he guided me. so big thanks to you all these fish are cause of you!

ya the 4th one is a "zombie" king that probably would have been dead within a day or two if you hadn't caught it heh... probably halfway rotten and if I were you, would definitely not eat it. your best bet is to smoke the browns. personally i wouldn't wanna eat any of those 4 fish though. maybe... just maybe the smallest of those 3 browns.

Nice fish man! Those fish look like s**t, though. :lol: I personally would never eat those fish only because they look bad. Otherwise, I'd gobble up a plate of baked salmon or browns anyday.

Very nice sized fish...but man...they look unhealthy. They all look sick/diseased/beat up. I'm with most others here. I wouldn't eat any of those and probably would have tossed them back to die. lol
