3 limits of kokanee in 2.5 hours: Had an epic day on the water with great friends. We were on the water early, and left early as well. Within minutes of getting our lines in the water we were doubled up on Kokanee and the action never slowed down. Within 2.5 hours all three of us had our limits of kokanee. We thought about tossing the last couple back so we could keep fishing, but decided we would make our wives happy and head home early and surprise them. My wife was more than excited to see the fish and said it was the best fish she has ever eaten. That includes the salmon and halibut we have caught and eaten in Alaska as well. Love living in this great state!. Photo submitted by Russell Andrus on Jul 25, 2016 12:27 PM

Elk Close Up: On and early preseason scouting trip and trail cam check, got some pictures of some elk that wanted close ups, and also one that wanted to make a friend. The cow elk also wanted to take her a picture herself, so pointed the camera in the direction she wanted. Got over 400 pictures from this trail cam..

Storms Rolling in... : This picture was taken in the High Uinta's on the way to Whitney Lake. We stopped along the way at our favorite small pond where we sometimes see moose. There was no moose this time, however I was able to snap this beautiful picture of the storm rolling in. In the picture is my baby girl and her grandma. It was a beautiful day. .

NormaJean's "BOW": NormaJean and I knew each other in High School in California in the 70's, and haven't had any contact with each other until Facebook in 2014. She has lived in Utah for the last 20 years and I was living in Texas. Long story short, I moved to Utah in 2014 and we were married in 2015. NormaJean never fished and I have been fishing all my life. We started fishing together at Lake Jordanelle and some local lakes around Layton . I usually catch "stockers" if any at all and NormaJean's fish range from 14 to 18 inch "Lunkers". She's landed 6 or 7 of these the last couple of years. That is until we went fishing at Lake Jordanelle during the fourth of July weekend of 2016. We got there in the morning and set our lines. She likes to use Orange or Green Glitter Powerbait. This morning she went with Green because it matched the awesome view we had of the mountains!. Not 10 minutes into sitting down to enjoy the day, her pole arched violently, fell off of the pole holder (stick) and was being dragged into the lake! She jumped up and grabbed the pole as it was halfway into the water, set the hook and the fun began. I could see the concern on her face as she struggled with whatever was on the line. I was even more worried because I knew she only had 6 lbs test line on her reel ! All I could say was "just go slow and take it easy" (HaHa, as I type this I can still see the look she gave me when I would say that). I had the drag on her reel set low and every time she thought the fish was getting closer to shore it would make another run for deeper water. She had never had that happen before so this brought on a whole new set of facial expressions I've never seen from her before. It was about 10 minutes of pole shaking before we saw color close to shore and we were able to see how big this fish was. At this point " I " had new facial expressions. California and Texas where I fished don't have Trout this size. She finally tired the Monster out after about 15 minutes and got it close enough for me to get it in the net. This 21inch trout was the biggest trout I have ever seen in a net and needless to say, this was NormaJean's Biggest fish of her Life and short fishing career! We both stood there in awe at the size of this fish. She said she was still shaking an hour after we had the beast on the stringer! That made me laugh again because I know now NormaJean is Hooked for Life! We are returning to Lake Jordanelle for a 4 day camping/fishing trip at the end of July. I hope I will be sending in more pictures of her and her fish. I just love to see the look on her face every time her fishing pole bends toward the water, doesn't matter what size the fish is, she just loves to be there with me and I with her..

Big Bucketmouth: Jaren Baker was fishing at a lake in Idaho with his Grandpa, Scott Muirbrook and his uncle Brandon Muirbrook when he thought he had a snag. The big largemouth Bass put up quite a fight and broke the water putting on quite a show. Jaren did a great job hooking and landing the fish and would like to thank his uncle Brandon for teaching him how to Bass fish.. Photo submitted by Scott Muirbrook on Jul 22, 2016 06:50 PM
