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?
