Or so I thought.  It was a small, bright hatchery fish and I killed it.   When I was done filleting it I checked inside and lo and behold, there were two milt sacs that were all of two or three inches long by 1/4 inch wide.  It also had a maxillary clip and an adipose clip indicating it was indeed a Clackamas summer run, albeit a rather late one.

Water temp was 39 degrees.  Fly was on the hang down for five or ten seconds.  I made one strip to start pulling in the running line and the fish grabbed.  I didn't expect that in water so cold but I'll take it--gladly!

This was my first fish on the SpeyCo 4" Skandi reel.  I sure like the growl that reel makes when the fish is ripping out line.
