This was the largest of the batch caught on a recent "drive by" gorge trip. I have driven a particular route to and from work for several weeks now and have been close to death several times due to the constant rubber necking at the stream that parallels the express way. I finally decided that enough was enough and left home for the 2+ hour drive about 5 hours early. I found a small branch off of the main stream and fished it until I came to the below waterfall. I would have normally taken to climbing, but my new company would not have understood the fiasco had I hurt myself. The fish were all small and released, but of course, it was an awesome stopover on my way to work.
