Quote(s) of the Day: The flows are dropping, it is time to head up river.

Fishing Highlights:

Flows have settled into the sweet spot for dry fly fishing. A lot of fish are out in the flats and pockets looking up. Dry dropper is a very effective method, but a single dry will give you the best possible drift.

The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear.
