Quote(s) of the Day: That is the biggest trout I have ever caught!

Fishing Highlights:

What a great Fall day it was today. The sun was out and the fish were on the feed. We only had a limited amount of time on the water but we took full advantage of the time given. The four hours spent on the water I stayed busy unhooking fish which was great. We ended up sticking a 27" Rainbow and quite a few more nice sized fish. They were mainly keying on thin profile midges such as zebra midges, black beauties, blood midges and tube midges. As long as you had a drag free presentation you were hooking trout. The trout were on the feed, so get out there while there is good weather left.

The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
