Fished the Russian River today for trout. Fished with Salmon swirl bead. Really the first time that I put 100% effort into fishing the river for trout. Right off the bat hooked up with a very nice rainbow that measured 27 inch. We fished all the way down from Garyling parking lot to the confulence. We hooked allot of fish and lost allot. It took some time for me to learn how to fish with a bead and to fight these fish with 6lb tip it line. Also caught allot of Dollies to. Here is a pic of a dolly. For a week day there were more people down there today then what I thought would be. About two dozen people there. No bears today.
