Quote(s) of the Day: This is the best day of fishing I've ever had!

Fishing Highlights:

Today was a great day on the water with Bob and Jeff despite it being a little icy. This was Bob and Jeff first time up to Lincoln hills but not their first time fly fishing. With the low flows the fish are starting to stack up so we looked for ideal holding areas for the fish. Jeff was the first to catch a a nice rainbow trout and it was on his first cast! Bob is definitely a fishy guy and had a no problem catching alot of fish. We jammed out and caught fish all day, even with the low flows and ice. I'm looking forward to fishing with these guys again next year!

Bundle up its cold out there! The days are getting shorter and fish are going into winter feeding habits. For best results plan on getting on the water around 10 am. Usually the bite is good until 2-3 pm.  The fish are beginning to stack up. Concentrate your efforts on the river’s riffles and deep long holes. The sight fishing has been great. The water is getting low and the weather is getting cooler every day, better make one last voyage to the water! Only a few weeks left to catch! I can’t feel my hands it’s freezing outside! Time to put the fly rod away and tie some flies! Looks like winter is around the corner, what a season it was! Can’t wait until next spring!  The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 40-43 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
