Quote(s) of the Day: I cannot believe that fish did not sprint to the fast water!

Fishing Highlights:

The water showed a little downward trend overnight. When we started this morning it was 638 cfs.We had a little bump up in the later part of the morning. After that it was steadily dropping .When we called it a day it was 497. Susan walked in the river this morning and was met by a nice and polite rainbow that went twenty five inches. It stayed in the slow water for us so we could quickly get him in the net. We fished a nymph and dry dropper this morning .Both were very productive. It still all depends on the slow seems. In the afternoon Bill took a nice fish on the nymph rig. After that the dry dropper seemed to work the best. It was a great day to be out on the water with Bill and Susan again. Hope to see you soon.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Slightly Off.
