Quote(s) of the Day: "Yacht Club offers the finest meadow stream fishing and some of the most technical pocket water fly fishing on South Boulder Creek."

Fishing Highlights:

Yacht Club is fishing very well. Lots of the rainbow trout are preparing to spawn and with the warmer weather fishing will only be getting better and better. The water is low enough for fishing a dry dropper rig and we are catching most of the fish on top.

The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
