Quote(s) of the Day: “Did you catch that fish on the second cast?”

Fishing Highlights:

It was a blue bird day up on Lincoln Hills property today. The flows were around 289CFS this morning which had the fish actively feeding right when we hit the water. We started the day with standard nymph rigs. Water temps were 42 degrees which had the fish pushed down. Mille’s second cast ended with a nice rainbow in the basket. They seemed to be keyed in on a size 14 hares ear all morning and a few odd ball eats on eggs and caddis larvae. The afternoon we switched over to dry dropper rigs and did very well. They changed their diet over to smaller baetis and midge pupae imitations. Mille had a goal in the afternoon to land 20 fish and she nailed it. They flows came up quite a bit around 3:30pm which dirtied up the water a bit but should drop back down. Thanks for a great day guys! See you in July!!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
