Didn't hear the rumor while at RR but talked to Laker67 on the way home from the opener and he'd said something about an 18#brown trout being caught. He hoped it was one of our group but I assured him we didn't have anything over 5#.Didn"t see the numbers of big fish as reported by the local media but the big fish could have gone deep and would have hard to see.The water was in great shape after hearing some of the reports from friends fishing the other parks.The big brown in question may have come about from a couple of regulars that I saw the last Saturday of the winter season.As we were talking then,I related the story from the summer of 2011 were I fished for 3 browns in the park over 9# late one evening and lost the middle sized female estimated at 13#.Had to leave the next day so got Laker67 on the phone for him to come down and get a shot;he had the smallest fish of the 3 on estimated in the 9#.Some of the other folks fishing RR may know more about these fish but didn't see anything of them in 2012.
