Fishy caught a fish off Big Rock Isle on the 19th. (2)

The Bull Trout Fishy caught on the 17th . . . .(4)

Fishy caught either the smallest or his second to largest fish on his third fishing day. (1)

17th is 8 or 24

On the fourth day of his trip Fishy landed a fish over twenty inches long by the Old Cutbank on a wet fly. (2)

17th is 24 and Cutbank

Fishy caught the 24 inch fish on his Little Mouse(3)

With one exception, Fishy caught fish of even size on even number days and fish of odd sizes on odd days. (5)

He fought either the Humpback or the 24 inch monster on the 21st.

Humpback is 21st.(2)

Fishy's five mile hike along a moutain trial to Big Little Falls, paid off on his last day with a prized Humpback trout.( 5)

Humpback is Big Little Falls.

The deep hole of Bottle Well yelled Fishy a 19 incher on the first or second day of his trip.(5)

First day is 14th so 19 incher had to be second day, 15th.

15th then is Bottle.

Fishy caught the 24 inch fish on his Little Mouse after he caught the Dolly Varden . . . . (3)

Mouse is 24 inch fish on 17th

Dolly is 14th or 15th

Fishy caught his fish on the Mayfly three calendar days (two fishing days) after he caught a fish with the Stonefly nymph. (3)

Mayfly can only be 18th as Mouse is 17th.

Stonefly is 15h

Fishy used a Mayfly to fish Dish Creek.

At least four fishing days passed between the time that Fishy used the Stonefly Nymph and his Humpy. (4)

Stonefly is 15th so Humpy is 21st

Fishy only used dry flies after using a wet fly on the 19th. (3)

Only wet fly left is Yuk Bug. So Yuk Bug is 19th.

Fishy caught the smallest of his special fish, a little Brookie, after he caught the fish on his Elk Hair Caddis, but before he caught the fish in Deep Channel. (1)

Elk Hair Caddis can only be 14th.

Parachute Adams the only fly left is 20th.

His shiny Dolly Varden was not the fish lured from the depths of Bottle Well. Bottle is 15th so Dolly is 14th.(1)

Fishy caught the smallest of his special fish, a little Brookie, after he caught the fish on his Elk Hair Caddis, but before he caught the fish in Deep Channel.(1)

Brookie, 8 inches, (even) can only be Mayfly or Adams.

The fish Fishy landed with a net at Little Curl was larger than the one he worked onto shore at Dish Creek, but it was not as large as the one he lifted from the water at Big Little Falls.(2)

Adams can only be Little Curl or Deep Channel. its not Channel (1) and not Little Curl (2) so Brookie is Dish Creek.

Fishy caught the smallest of his special fish, a little Brookie, after he caught the fish on his Elk Hair Caddis, but before he caught the fish in Deep Channel.(1)

So Deep Channel is 20th and 14th is Little Curl (last one).

The Bull Trout Fishy caught on the 17th was longer than the Rainbow he caught but smaller than his Lake Trout.(4) 17th is Bull, 24 inches so Lake can only be 27. Only odd without a named fish name is 19th.

So 19th is Lake Trout and 27th.

21st is 17 inches, only odd left.

Deep Channel is 22 inches.

The fish Fishy landed with a net at Little Curl was larger than the one he worked onto shore at Dish Creek, but it was not as large as the one he lifted from the water at Big Little Falls(2)

Little Curl is less than 17 inches. 16 inches.

Although they both jumped and splashed over the water the same way, the Rainbow fishy caught was bigger than his Cut Throat.(5)

So Rainbow is 22 inches and Cut Throat 19 inches.
