Glenn Stockton - Rainbow Trout Glenn Stockton - Rainbow Trout My Dad, Glenn Stockton, was a fisherman forever (he even went ice fishing at Eagle Valley Reservoir near Pioche, Nevada the weekend before he passed away). The trophy he was always proudest of was this 28 1/2" Rainbow Trout. As the story goes, he was visiting his sister and her husband in Sunnyvale, California and he NEEDED to go fishing. Wherever he traveled, he always asked, "Where can you fish around here?" This time it was the Russian River near Guerneville in Sonoma County, California in March of 1964. It would have been a record that year, except Dad was fishing out of season, so he couldn't claim it (he always regretted that, not that it was out of season, but that he couldn't claim it). He only had his ocean gear, so he had heavy line. It was cold. Mom was reading a book in the car and Dad had to climb down a steep embankment to reach the river. Just as he hooked this baby, the zipper on his pants came apart and his pants started to fall. For the next ninety minutes, he alternated between calling to Mom to help him out (she did not hear-too engrossed in that book), holding his drawers up, and walking up and down the river working this bad boy to shore. He had no way to get to his net, so he threw it up on shore and shoved his rod down its throat. He then climbed up to the car holding the fish and his pants, wearing the biggest smile. He hurried to the trunk of the car because it was an illegal fish and threw it in, withdrew the pole and that fish flopped in the trunk all the way back to Sunnyvale, he still had a lot of fight left. Dad was afraid someone would hear the fish in the trunk! He got a photo once he was back home in Sun Valley, California and, though he loved to eat Rainbow Trout, decided to have it mounted. This one did not get away :-) - Kevin Stockton
