I took the kids to Matanuska lake and Bradley lake today. We started at Bradley and caught a couple trout one maybe 14".
Then we moved to Matanuska lake and caught a few little ones that we let go. While we were fishing this behemoth rainbow swam by us and turned around and swam back in front of us again. The thing had to be 28" I would say 7 or 8 pounds easy. By far the largest rainbow I have seen in a lake in Alaska anyways. I saw a 10 pounder in a lake known for Pike in Montana. I know I have seen 5 pounders in Kepler,South Rolly and Eska(slipper) lakes but this one was much larger.
Of course it had no interest in what we were using but it was exciting.
