Quote(s) of the Day: "That was a fun day!"

Fishing Highlights:

It was a beautiful spring day today. Not a lot of wind, bright sunshine. The fish were ready to eat as soon as we hit the water. Ron and Alan both started hooking lots of fish on a dry dropper rig. We chased a big rainbow for a little longer than we should of. We even tossed a nymph rig at him. We caught a few more fish before moving down river. Down river Ron found a little non assuming hole that produced several nice fish including a beautiful twenty one inch rainbow.Every time we looked back up river Alan was pulling out his net for another fish. The afternoon was more of the same with a couple of nice fish taking the dry. It is always a pleasure to be able to fish with the Robinsons. Thanks to the both of you for another memorable day on the water.

The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
