Fishing Highlights:

I met with my friends family for a hike down to the Deadwood Placer section of our upper property. We hiked in on snow filled tracks on a beautiful chilly morning. We arrived down in Deadwood with the sun hitting the water, which was beautiful! Felt great to take in the last breath of fall before the snowstorms came in this week. Carolyn and Jeff spent the entire day nymphing since the water was ice cold! A slow start but after just a little time and finesse, we were hooking on to some beautiful fish! It was great to see Carolyn hook in to a beautiful brown trout all colored up! After lunch we headed up to granite hole and hooked in to some very strong bows! Jeff landed the fish of the day! The fish were really dialed in to small midges, baetis and worm patterns. You really had to get that fly right in front of their face! Great day guys! Cannot wait for next time we all get to go fish again!

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
