Fishing Highlights:

Bonnie and I fished the upper section of freeze placer for the first time this year. It did not disappoint. It took all of five minute before she was hooked up on a dry dropper rig. The fish loved the swing today. We had lots of fish come up for the dry as well. We would catch a couple and move a couple of feet all the way up and down the canyon. We were on our way back down when we spotted a fish behind a rock. We climbed down on the rocks, made one cast and a twenty one inch rainbow was in the bottom of the net. You forget how beautiful it is up there. It was a great time to get back up there and fish that water. Always a great time with bonnie. Thanks for a great day today!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
