Quote(s) of the Day: "What an incredible caddis hatch!"

Fishing Highlights:

Caddis popped out of the river all day long keeping the fish hungry and eating off the surface consistently through the day. Although we spent most of the day nymphing, we threw dries with success in the afternoon. Today was a combination of tips and pointers for future success. It was a little tough to work on weaknesses when hooking up on fish every few drifts. What a great problem to have.

The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Slightly Off.
