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

Fishing Highlights:

Another beautiful October day on Lincoln Hills. The fish were on the feed this afternoon. As soon as we stepped into the water we were hooking fish. We caught a mixed bag of trout consisting of Rainbows, Cuttbows, Cutts, and browns. There wasn't much you could tie on your rig and have the fish refuse. George managed to land a 28" Rainbow putting it in the 12lb range. All fish were caught subsurface on nymph rigs. Towards the end of the afternoon we threw some streamers and had success doing so. With the great weather get out and wet a line.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
