Quote(s) of the Day: "Deadwood is fishing great. The fish look big and healthy after a long winter. Now is the time to get in some great fishing on the pocket water sections of South Boulder Creek."

Fishing Highlights:

The dry fly fishing is really good right now. In general the fish are looking up and sporadic hatches of blue winged olives are keeping the fish coming to the surface.

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