Nunya Creek
July 30, 2009

Fished Nunya today and landed between 10-15 trout. An equal mix of browns and rainbows. The pictured rainbow was in the drop off hole. It fought like a demon! While only 19-20" it was super thick.

The following pictures are all of a 26" taped brown. It took a pink chernobyl ant with a tiny sip about 4 inches off a rock wall. I didn't think it was that big until it peeled off line in an upstream run and jumped twice. It was fought, revived and released.

I also ran into a 4 foot + rattlesnake. I had the snake chaps on, but did still scream like a little girl!

Good day!

probably - the brown trout on that stream are fierce.... oh, you meant the snake.
