Quote(s) of the Day: Thats a strike and another fish to net!

Fishing Highlights:

With the river coming up and running high and a little off color the conditions were not ideal. However we did manage to find a few spots where we could get good drifts to fish, typically tight on the banks. Being that the good spots were small, few and far between Bryan and Matthew took turns on every strike, hookup, or landed fish. It was great fun as they would tease and joke each other. Good thing the fish were feeding good and there was a solid strike every 4 to 5 drifts. We worked for the fish but had great success and a great time.

The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 52-55 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Off-Color.
