Now this thread is funny. So where do these 30" fish show up on the PFBC electro-shocking surveys they do all across the state?

Besides, I'll start believing there are 30" fish, when I start to see pics of actual 25" trout. Taped.

Too funny

Had 2 in the 26+ range (Delaware and Spring). Would have cracked the 30" barrier in "the ditch" back on the 80's more than once but the gear couldn't take what the fish was dealing out.

Yeah. Based on the lengths assigned to some of the fish I've seen in photos on this forum there are quite a few posters whose estimating skills are way off. Maybe I'm just bitter because I'm still trying to hit the 20" mark on a wild trout.

Mcsneak,
If you have not hit the 20inch mark on wild trout, you are not trying to. If you want one, you let me know.

i know of a few over 25" that have been caught. my biggest wild brown is roughly 22", but have a few right at the 20" mark. Ive seen wild browns on a couple streams that im sure were over 25". But with that being said, ive never hooked anything that big in PA. but i know that they are there.

My biggest non-lake run wild brown was 25" out of a LV stream. I've caught quite a few in the 20"+ range but the only fish close to 30" was a 28" brown out of the Salmon River last fall. I do not believe those fish are actually wild. (Are they?)

Here is the link from the State for the biggest fish they get to verify...it can be modified by year http://fishandboat.com/bigfish.htm

Additionally, I have attached a pic of the previously mentioned 32.5" that I removed the name and face from (fly). I also have my 28.5" (spin).

Not real.....

I kid. I simply don't understand why those that have not caught certain things are so cynical that they don't exist.

NS,
That top photo looks like the one my buddy sent me. He met a guy that was walleye fishing in the Susky and took a brown over 27" on a minnow.

Sas,
I've extended the offer to take you north but you always veer left and end up on Pine. If you join us, you'll get to cast dries to risers in the 18-25". It doesn't happen every day but it happens a lot more than you think.

I think I estimate on the shy side of things. During the Catskill Jam in October, you can ask Stimey and martin0206.....I'm brutal on estimates. The opening of the net is 21" and if the fish wasn't as wide as the net.... I'd yell "that one's 15", get him back in the water quick." :))

Hey hey hey! I veer left, but don't fish the Pine much at all! The problem is getting up north when you're up north. I think that actually happened once this year, but it was on my family vacation and my wife wasn't about to have me leave her at the cabin w/ two little ones all day while I head out to the river. It'll happen.

Thanks for the offer SBecker. I don't fish anywhere near as often as you do so that's one strike against me. I figure my best shot at one is Penns Creek and I got there all of 3 times this year. Caught plenty of fish each time including plenty of nice ones. I don't target big fish by swinging big streamers and quite frankly the biggest fish I've caught in that stream have come on smaller (#16) nymphs. I may have had fish on that were at or above the 20" mark but haven't landed one. I'll get one one of these days. If desperation sets in I know who to call.

To PatrickC - I believe they exist in a select few streams. Just not in any great quantity.

Hard to make out but I think the writing on that photo says Big Springs. Maybe it swam downstream from the ditch or it's an old breeder they tossed in?

I do not fish streamers unless conditions present themselves to do so. Those conditions never line up with my schedule. Last 22 incher came on a size 18 cdc collard pt.

I measure my fish on my rod, make a mark with mud or visually, then measure when I get back to the car.

I float below kinzua with td55 this spring and he had a honest 30 inch class brown follow his fly into the 1st turn of a figure 8. We weren't chucking small #censor# either. If there's any place to catch a "trophy" trout I'm taking beast class fish it below kinzua.
