The Leopard Rainbow Trout is very
aggressive, which would account for their large size on the Kanektok.
Several guests landed trout over 25 inches. I had a huge trout
that gave me an incredible battle. It made five jumps within ten
feet of the boat - the last jump had to be two or more body lengths
- right in front of me. All I needed to do was to drop my rod
tip and give it some slack, but I was too overwhelmed with the
beauty and power. It was a magical moment for me as this monster
trout broke the heavy tippet. I was not disapointed at all in
losing the fish. I was thankful for the wonderful show. That fish
made my trip.
