29 inch dolly varden

Dolly Varden at the Metolius River

My husband, Russell Schulte, caught this 29 inch dolly varden in the Metolius River last May. The area we fish is catch & release, fly-fishing only. This was one of the smallest dollies that he has landed. The Metolius is known for it's trout fishing, however, the really good fly-fishermen go for the harder to catch dolly varden. I have yet to hook a dolly, but I will keep trying.

Thought you might enjoy a picture of a unique fish that you don't see everyday.
