Osviack Rainbow

A really nice Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) from the Osviack River in western Alaska. At 695mm (A bit over 27 inches), it was the third biggest trout of the trip. And it was a fantastic fight, it took twenty minutes to land the fish, and I still had to get help netting it. And yes, it was released after I took a fin clip for genetics.
