nice fish on the fly. i've heard their powerful runs are right up there with a redfish...

i've targeted them in CO on a fly rod never got a hookup though. a big green or brown woolybooger will catch em or a nymph.

You know how spooky they are so the cast is everything, I find that a light cast about 6 ft in front of them (cast to a point about 3 ft above where you want the fly to land and it will float down). The egg doesn't float but will sink at a slow rate. If you haven't spooked it it will pick the egg up, and thennnnn it's fish on so be ready to move.
