Is it a fish or a log?

Big Hole River 4990 cfs, temp. 53

The river is rising like crazy but despite that we actually had a pretty good day. I heard some reports that they did well on top water action but I call bull on that. Streamers tied with a lot of weight and stonefly patterns with the same got fish.

Bill was using a heavy streamer when his line went tight and he said either I hooked a log or a big fish. It turned out he had a big fish that when we finally boated him it looked like a dorado or dolphin with that pug nose. It was a pug nosed brown trout with shoulders and an attitude. We took several pics of him as it was the damndest thing I ever saw.
