Martin Tinnin caught this tank of a rainbow trout Sunday on the White River while fishing with guide Casey Hughes. With heavy water releases at Bull Shoals Dam, the river was running at about 20,000 cfs, but the high water didn't seem to interfere with this big fish's feeding schedule. Hughes took advantage of a caddis hatch in slack water to put Tinnin on this 26-inch rainbow that was released right after the photo was taken.
