Quote(s) of the Day: When you're just catching fish all day, you sometimes don't really learn how to fish! I enjoyed the tougher conditions today because we had to work for it and each fish felt earned.

Fishing Highlights:

It was great to see Ian, a young angler, continue to perfect his technique and consistently catch fish all day. The streamer bite got exciting at moments and run-off was erratic and unpredictable, making for a something out of a nature show.

The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 19- degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Slightly Off.
