Fishing Highlights:

Fishing with Tucker and Cara today was super fun today - I always notice how people with a good, easy going attitude catch the most fish. The morning started off with a very cold and slushy river. The ice definitely impacted our ability to present flies well, but we were still able to get it done. Tucker did a great job using a down/across presentation with a realistic black streamer, finding the most aggressive fish in plunge pools. Cara and I worked hard on fishing to sluggish trout in shallow riffles with tiny midge patterns - but it worked when Cara brought a nice 17" bow to the net. By the time lunch came and went the river transformed into the natural freestone we're used to, with an accompanying midge and trico hatch. The trout were readily feeding on a small beatis and midge pupa, although the drift really had to be perfect. Tucker hooked a HUGE rainbow in the boulder river beat that jumped and spit the hook - I'll be remembering that one for a while! Overall - great day! Today was a really fun day on the water with Deb and Rich! The morning was really cold and we had to combat some ice and slush to get our flies down to the fish. This made the morning a little slow but Rich still managed to catch fish, despite her best efforts Deb struggled in the morning. Rich did get a nice sized rainbow trout to the net in the morning. The afternoon proved to be much better and everyone caught fish. Deb caught an amazing rainbow trout that made her day. I'm looking forward to fishing with these guys again next time!


  The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
