Out of Area: , by Andrew Harris: Huge Brookie: 5 stars
I had the chance to fish with my old friend Mike Bias today.  Mike is now an outfitter in Montana, based in Twin Bridges.  He guides the Big Hole, Beaverhead, and Madison in Montana and the Henry's Fork and South Fork in Idaho.  Mike's website is www.setsetset.com.
 
We decided to do something different today and fish Henry's Lake at the source of the Henry's Fork.  The lake is big, relatively shallow, and home to really large Yellowstone cutthroat, cuttbows, and brookies.  It reminded me a lot of Crowley, with boats clustered in groups around productive areas.  We fished sly lines and floating lines.  I got one fish on a brassie under an indicator, but all the others came on small nymphs on a slow retrieve.  My huge brook trout ate a size 18 beadhead PT nymph.  Our best cutthroat were about 18".  I was really excited to fish this lake - it's been on my list for a long time.  I would go back in a heartbeat.
Biggest brookie of my life
