The fish were much larger by the early 1930's- Witter caught several fish of 6 lbs., and others took fish over 8 lb. Witter fought a large fish which he lost, and which later washed up downstream and weighed over 15 lb. His favorite streams were the Henry's Fork of the Snake, Silver Creek, and Rising River.
