Quote(s) of the Day: That's the biggest trout I've ever caught!

Fishing Highlights:

The wind was howling today but that didn't stop the fish from eating. There wasn't much that we threw today that would get a refusal. It went from very subtle takes from prior days to fish taking the nymphs and running upstream with them. The flows were bumped down today to 15CFS but the fishing was great. In the morning hours we stuck quite a few fish and one very large rainbow. Afternoon was red hot with hookups all afternoon. Despite the wind it was a fantastic day on Lincoln Hills and great fishing.

The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
