Quote(s) of the Day: "The fish are eating anything green today!"

Fishing Highlights:

Bob decided to make one last trip to Lincoln Hills before the snow and ice make it impossible to fish. It was a great call! The low flows and gin clear water of the fall season made it the perfect day for sight fishing to the larger trout. Light nymph rigs with small green bugs did the trick all day. See you in the spring Bob.

The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 19- degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
