Four old farts spent last two weeks at Fair Haven State Park, best cottage (#42) in the park, right up from boat launch at top of hill. First week caught one small brown. Second week, thank goodness for Coho's. They were in close ,brown trout water, nothing real big but help keep the skunk out. Was starting to have doubts about the brown trout fishery when on the last day ( Thurs ), we ended up with two nice browns, one male and one huge female. Scaled at 11 1/2, and 16 1/2 . The female had some eggs in her but not a lot, looked like the skien was pretty much emptied. Also had  a lot of fat in the belly area which was unusual. I imagine it had spawned recently, last fall or spring I would guess in one of the tribs. Some of the cohos we caught were on smaller size, thinking maybe 1 - 1 1/2 old and all had eggs in them.IMG_4233.thumb.jpg.21546a676702e9cc0d140f3cb14295b9.jpg IMG_4226.thumb.jpg.451a41a8171e1b435019bd705e69b7f1.jpgIMG_4218.thumb.jpg.8df513bc2e298a65a9130f177c1c97e0.jpgIMG_4233.thumb.jpg.21546a676702e9cc0d140f3cb14295b9.jpgIMG_4226.thumb.jpg.451a41a8171e1b435019bd705e69b7f1.jpg
