I'm not "read in" on Flaming Gorge. To me, this seems pretty late in the year for the lake to not be frozen up. Is it the case that the Gorge doesn't freeze up some years?
I'm in Colorado and pretty much everything above 6,000' elevation has been iced up since mid November... two months ago!
Some spectacular fishing your son had. How long did they fish that day before they had their Home Run Hour?

I think about 3 hours of nothing, then the hour bite started. They had a double hookup on 20 pounders they said.
Flaming Gorge usually freezes up by this time of year. I always seen it frozen in past years before now. They did say there were areas iced up. It could go any day now if it stays cold. But before it freezes, they bite. They were hungry.
Utah is not managing the lake right as always. No stocks of brown trout and they protect Macks. It use to be 3 Macks a day limit, but now its one over 26 inches I think. Utah doesn't like browns, they are Mack lovers....
My opinion is they need to take the limit off Macks and thin them out. The place is INFESTED with Macks. Its like a bad disease. The lake is out of balance.
Wyoming stocks browns and I'm sure the millions of Macks eat most of them......too many Macks in the lake. _________________
