The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

This is the first of it's family I've seen, collected from a tiny, fishless stream in the Cascades. The three species of this genus all live in the Northwest and are predators that primarily eat stonefly nymphs Merritt R.W., Cummins, K.W., and Berg, M.B. (2019).
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

I am heading to Byers creek this summer to go after rainbows, lake trout and burbot in the lake. Is anyone willing to give away general locations to fish? Upper or lower creek

Oh, okay, thanks. I have never understood the allure of wild trout that rarely exceed 9". Each to his own madness I guess.

Yup - although the allure was probably best explained by Traver's Testament.
