Quote(s) of the Day: Sometimes you come here to Lincoln Hills and catch one fish after another, but we really worked for them today, which when you think about it is still really good fishing compared to anywhere else!

Fishing Highlights:

The day started off with spotting a curious mink along the shoreline, then we crossed a raging river barely escaping with our lives and proceeded to fish up a remote canyon full of weary, wild fish. Finally by the second half of the day small beatis were hatching and fished keyed into small RS2s with provided for consistent action throughout the main ranch. We found a ton of golden stoneflies and giant caddis larva ... a sign that a big hatch is upon us.

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