Trophy trout thrills more than lucky angler
Luke Schwitzer was still thinking about the teenagers in the canoes when the strike indicator on his fly line paused in the current. He had no idea there was a once-in-a-lifetime fish on the other end.
Schwitzer had brought a few trout to his net on the lower Kinnickinnic River that Monday evening, Aug. 22. But the fishing had generally been slow, and the teenager-steered canoes that floated by him around 7:30 p.m. didn't help any.
