Quote(s) of the Day: "That fish came up and slammed the dry fly!"
Dennis landed an amazing cutthroat. Prettiest fish of the year.

Fishing Highlights:

The mornings have been a little chilly early on. If you can stay warm the first hour, the rest of the time it is beautiful. There was a little ice when we started, but it didn't take long for it to disappear. We started off with dry dropper rigs in the shallow water and didn't switch all day. The fish were taking the droppers early on. In the afternoon Dale and Norman were met with lots of fish coming up for the dries on top. The fishing was amazing all day. Dale and Norman had me running back in fourth constantly netting fish. Dry fly fishing in November you have got to love it.The fish went on the feed as the water warmed up in the afternoon. We even had takes on dry flies. What a great way to wrap up the season.


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