Fishing Highlights:

It was a pleasure to have Tommy and his son Jared up to Lincoln Hills today. The flows have come down to a pretty minimal level on the river and we were due to get some snow at some point during the day. We started our day with having some great lunch by Chef D and rigged up for the afternoon. Due to the river being very low, we decided to use dry dropper setups and looked for any bit of water where the fish had some coverage. The snow came down hard for a bit and we started to hook on to some quality fish! I switched Jared to a euro nymph setup and after some teaching, it was on! Such a great day with these guys! Thanks again for getting out on the river with me!

The lower flows and clear water means it’s time for smaller flies, longer leaders, and lighter tippets.   The fishing is great.  Overcast skies and 36-39 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
