Fishing Highlights:

Here comes your water Denver! South Boulder Creek is on the rise, but the fishing is still there and as the fish grow custom to the rising water, the fishing will pick back up and be great again. Chris and Michelle came to Lincoln Hills to do battle with some big fish, and they got their money's worth in that regard. Chris hooked into his first slab that immediately took to the strong current and put in a huge run and broke us off clean. We quickly reloaded and stuck a few more trout before he hooked into another South Boulder Creek slab that gave us a run down the river and after sprinting the length of a football field to catch up we got him to the net. Michelle, stayed with her game and worked the soft eddies along the side of the river and produced a bunch of fish for the net. lots of weight and a good drift will catch you a good number of fish. Focus on the soft water and behind structure and you should see plenty of takes.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 52-55 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Stained.
