Quote(s) of the Day: This is a perfect day for great fly fishing!

Fishing Highlights:

High water didn’t stop us today from getting into as many trout as we could. As usual during runoff, we found fish tight to the banks. Nick landed a fat rainbow over 20 inches on his second cast. Numerous trout were landed over 15 inches. He also caught a grand slam which included rainbow, brown, cutthroat, cutbow, and tiger trout. The fishing was not hot, but very consistent throughout the day. We even had a bit of dry fly action. Nick, it was a pleasure guiding you. Thanks for a great day on the water.

Wading is difficult but the fishing is still good. South Boulder Creek at Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing Club has been flowing high but deep nymphing rigs using San Juan Worms, Twenty Incher Stones, Girdle Bugs are still producing trophy fish. Runoff is subsiding. The water across Colorado is clearing up day by day and we are looking forward to doing more and more fly fishing trips. The bug life is getting active as well; summer is just around the corner. The river is looking superb another great summer of fishing is just around the corner.  The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Slightly Off.
