Fishing Highlights:

Fantastic day on Espy ranch. Non-stop action from start to finish. A dry-dropper rig is the way to go. We netted a grand slam today without even realizing it. August is a great time to get up to this property.

Terrestrials are fooling lots of fish. Hopper and dropper combos are the most productive way to fish right now. Lots of fish are feeding on the surface.  The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear.
