Lake Pend Oreille trout running big

FISHING -- A few trout are still looking ahead to the future while anglers back at the lake are trying to catch big trout during the Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club's  K&K Spring Derby.

"This is an awesome sight to behold," says the club's Facebook post about the Gerrard Rainbow ascending Grouse Creek Falls. "This image was captured by Landon Otis on Saturday on April 16th."

Meanwhile, here are the standings following the first weekend of the derby, which runs through May 1 with anglers competing for more than $10,000 in cash prizes:
