That’s my first rainbow trout!

Fishing Highlights:

The water is moving and the fish are stacked in the smallest of seams right now. John and JR found a couple of fish by drifting heavy stone flies followed by a worm pattern today in these small seams. Jack hooked a couple of very nice fish that we found in the little soft water along the side of the bank and behind the trees. You have to pay attention to where you are entering the water because the fish are literally right there at your feet.Hudson is a novice in the sport of fly fishing, but he had no problem catching fish after a bit of instruction. Jocelyn and Hudson were taking turns in one of the more productive holes during runoff. Jack steps in and immediately lands a very nice cutthroat. The afternoon was spent on the lake and it was challenging. Still, several fish were brought to net.


  The fishing is fair.  Overcast skies and 52-55 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Off-Color.
