Quote(s) of the Day: Fly fishing is so much fun!

Fishing Highlights:

It seems like the last four or five years the weather for mothers day has been a little less than perfect. It didn't snow on us this year but it was colder and raining. The flow was higher again today, around 665. That sounds high but in all actuality is flattened out some of the water. It was Judy's first time ever fly fishing. After a quick instruction she was off hooking and landing her first couple of fish. Chef D had a incredible mother's day lunch ready for us just as everybody was getting cold. After lunch Amanda broke out of her long winter's nap. Taking many large fish on a dry dropper drifting in the soft seems. Abigail took several nice fish as well with a nice rainbow coming up and taking the dry off the top. It was a great way, with a great family to spend mothers day with. Thank you to everyone and happy mothers day! I hope to see you soon.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Stained.
