Campchef Snapshot of the Week: July 26, 2014

We kick it off with this selfie of Dave and his dad. Father and son spent two and a half days at Panguitch lake, for their annual trip to dad’s old stomping ground, Panguitch Lake and they weren’t disappointed. They had football fish darting and jumping like torpedoes, at times David says if you weren’t holding your rod, you might loose it. Catching is always better than just fishing.

Nine year old Trayton Christensen has been busy fishing and enjoying his summer break. He’s caught brook trout, rainbow trout, tiger trout, walleye and this nice stripped bass down at Lake Powell. He says next year, tiger musky are on his hit list.

Well Trayton here’s your musky. Marc was fishing for bass at Pineview recently and landed this twenty seven inch, ten pound musky. He says it was a great day, since this tiger was the only fish he caught.

The Bingham family enjoyed a weekend together riding horses on their property up Chalk Creek. Their little cowboy Easton, was so proud to be riding his horse by himself, with grandpa at his side, that young Easton never wanted to get off the horse. Well, neither did his mother Lindsay. A family that rides together, stays together. Right?

And finally our winner tonight caught his biggest Utah fish and has not only a picture, but the video to prove it. Doug Mcleve was fishing a small northeastern stream when he latched into this giant rainbow.

Doug spotted the fish move in the river, made the perfect cast with his flyrod and says the fight even on this small stream was amazing. Doug got his video and put the fish back to one day be caught again. Way to go Doug, a true Utah giant, one worthy of our great prize as you just hauled in our snapshot of the week.
