Fishing Highlights:

Had a great day with Alex, Matt and Steve up on one of my personal favorite stretches of water. At the Yacht club stretch, you do have to work a little bit for the fish but once you find out what bugs they are focusing on, its game on! The rig of the day was a hippe stomper dry fly with a large CDC Pheasant tail below it. We had such a great day picking fish out of any slow seam or bucket we could find. After a lunch and a couple brews, we were back at it and the fishing stayed great! This is the time to get out in the upper stretches of our property! Thanks again guys!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
