Wayne Sheridan reports: Last weekend, river levels were the highest we have seen in a while and the water clarity was very poor. This created many challenges on where to fish. Cold weather was another challenge that reduced the activity of the fish and fishermen. We caught this nice 19 inch brown trout in fast water and it took ½ hour to land it. It put up a great fight.
