Quote(s) of the Day: There are nineteen to twenty trout in feeding in that same drift!

Fishing Highlights:

The flows were around 600 when we started today. They have been dropping as the day goes on. When we left they were down to 344. The fluctuation in the flow has made it a little more difficult but still fishing good. This was Dan's first time ever fly fishing. After a little instruction and some getting use to the process, he took to it very well. After a few fish managed to get off, he quickly redeemed himself with his first fish ever on a fly rod. He got comfortable with it and hooked many more fish in the morning.Matt started off with a dry dropper rig and soon was hooked up as well. Patrick hooked his first few fish on a nymph rig. The afternoon fished just as well. Dan was casting and making drifts like he had been doing this for a long time. The small seems are getting a little wider and the river actually had places were we could cross over to the other side. Get out the wading socks and dry flies it is getting close for full blown summer time. Thanks to everyone for a fun time

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Stained.
