Fishing Highlights:

We could not have asked for a nicer winter day. We found a lot of nice fish stacked up in a deep run and we able to fool quite a few nice trout on tiny midge and mayfly imitations.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 40-43 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
