Quote(s) of the Day: I can't imagine spending a day better than this in Colorado - perfect weather in the middle of summer casting dry flies to these big rainbows is perfect!

Fishing Highlights:

Fishing with Arthur today was a real treat because the weather was perfect and we had the whole place to ourselves. We started off fishing the lower ranch (railroad beat) and immediately had two nice fish in the net. Water levels came up a bit recently and definitely made finding fish in the shallow riffles more challenging. We frequently switched from a double nymph rig to dry dropper depending on the conditions. Half way up the beat Arthur hooked two massive rainbows - one which spit the hook quickly during a tarpon-esque jump...but the other fish, which I think was ten pounds, ran us all over the river. This huge fish fought for ten minutes before sprinting downstream, only to be remembered by our imagination. None-the-less, a ton of fun. The afternoon was ideal because scatter thunderstorms with light rain brown yellow sallies, grey drakes and pmds. We caught fish on dries, emergers and nymphs in every run or soft seam. By two o'clock we'd lost count. Overall, epic day!

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

Fly fishing in Colorado on South Boulder Creek at Lincoln Hills remains a solid choice for dry fly action and lots of aggressive eats from monster trout.
