Quote(s) of the Day: You do not get blue skies like this anywhere else!

Fishing Highlights:

The flows are still up and fishing has been on the challenging side. The fish are still there, but have a tendency to get grumpy when the flows change quickly. We had a lot of fun with a dry-dropper rig in the pocket water which produced a beautiful 22" rainbow on the dry.

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