Quote(s) of the Day: After landing his third fish in four casts, a Rainbow 25" 6+lb Lester Holt - "Either you're a really great guide or this is a really good river." Guide responds "Maybe a little bit of both."

Fishing Highlights:

Although it is never easy to catch fish on cue, Lester an Amy, hosts of NBC's Weekend Today Show proved up to the task. We had a wonderful day of fishing landing a number of trout over 5 pounds. Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing Club is without question the best fishery on Colorado's Front Range and continues to establish itself as one of the best trout fisheries anywhere in the world.

Lights Camera Action... Can you catch fish on cue? The best way to make sure your trip is full of action is to join The Flyfisher Guide Service at Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing Club.   The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 52-55 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Slightly Off.
