Half Pounder on the Applegate

Went fishing all day Saturday on the Rogue with not even a bite.  Sunday I fished the Applegate for about 7 hours.  At hour 6, had my first bite and hook up.  I was float and fly fishing.  I was fishing with a 10' Pinnacle Vertex rod with 6# mono and 4.5# fluro leader to stonefly, with a dropper of the stonefly to an egg pattern fly.  Very pretty fish, 24"-25" and about three to three and a half pounds.  Never had another bite after that, but the one fish was well worth two full days of hiking through the mountains fishing.
