I fished in it the other day and caught a few Cutthroats. Fishing guides have told me there are huge trout in the deep water, A guide told me nobody knows how deep it is. It’s a volcanic tunnel. He said it’s at least 200 feet deep. 🙀🤠

I’m taking a special trip just to fish here from Arizona. Any tips on what to use or where the best bite was?
