Ladin and Steve are at Clark Canyon Reservoir in Montana trying to lock on to some hard fighting winter rainbow trout. Conditions look perfect despite being cold, with a light ripple and dappled sunlight on the water. There's some ice on the water so they start casting to the edge of the ice pack and retrieving their streamers with sharp 5 inch strips, varying the depth each cast to search the water column. Ladin gets an early hit but after a hard fight the fish manages to escape and Ladin is disappointed to say the least. But it isn't long before he has another on and this time, brings it to the net after another tough fight. A bead headed Woolly Bugger is the fly thats working best here and several more rainbows are caught. As the sun starts dropping into the Montana sky, Steve finally gets into the action, after switching to an Olive Wollly Bugger and ends up landing another stunning rainbow. This has been a great session with the guys landing rainbows up to 4lb on the Clark Canyon Reservoir, a perfect way to spend a day in midwinter if you're ever in Montana.
