Quote(s) of the Day: This fished very well considering how high the water was.

Fishing Highlights:

South boulder creek is still in run-off and probably will be for a few more weeks. We have seen the flows fluctuate from 1350-700 CFS over the last couple of weeks. Hot days and mountain thunderstorms over the weekend changed the conditions from one day to the next. However, the river still fished well considering the conditions. Today it was about finding the softest water possible and using enough weight to get the flies to feeding fish below. We used a combo of dry/dropper rigs and indicator nymph rigs to get the job done. Presley was on the board quickly with a nice little cut bow and once we found where they were, the fishing continued to be good in the morning. Laura picked up a 13" rainbow for her first fish on the fly using a dry/dropper rig, running very close to the edge. The fishing in the afternoon picked up and we hooked a large portion of our fish at this time. We had periods where the water would muddy and the fish would turn off, but then pick back up.

The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Off-Color.
