Quote(s) of the Day: "I didn't even know that a fish was on there!"

Fishing Highlights:

The bite was very subtle today and every fish required a great drift. We had no problem getting fish to the net with one big brown that was well over five pounds and a rainbow that was pushing six and half pounds. We fought a cutbow that was all of seven pounds, but was lost after the fish had rolled up the line and maneuvered itself free.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
