Fishing Highlights:

It is still high water on South Boulder Creek so we were back to Czech nymphing. After cast instruction and getting the hang of how our drift should be, Brian and Aaron were into fish in no time. Within the first ten minutes we doubled up for a great photo. Through the morning fish were dialed in on the gold ribbed hares ear and a grey rs2. After lunch we were up in canyon beat. Aaron’s first cast ended in a nice fish to the net. Brian got a lesson on streamer fishing. I walked away from Brian for five minutes and all I heard was “YEEE HAAAA”. I knew he was hooked up on the streamer rig and his face was a smile from ear to ear. Fish were very responsive to the streamers and we were able to get a few nice fish to chase and eat. Great day today! We were faced with some challenging fishing conditions today, but as always we find ways to put fish in the net. Thanks Justin and Rob!Chris and I started the morning fishing a nymph rig on any soft water we could find. We caught a few nice fish on a red squirmy worm. After nymphing for awhile we switched over to the streamer rod. I had Chris cast downstream and strip the streamer back up river along the willows. We found a few nice fish that wanted to eat some meat. After lunch Seth joined up with us. It didn't take long before Seth hooked up with a real nice rainbow on a olive WD40. We continued to nymph all afternoon picking up fish here and there. Fishing seemed to be a little be slower for us in the afternoon. Thanks for a great day on the water guys!With a flow sitting around 450 cubic feet per second, the fishing was limited to pocket water and soft pockets along the bank. AJ didn't mind that one bit! AJ continuously worked on "the process" and began to the results of that when he landed 7 fish in a 20 minute period! The day was capped off by a beautiful 18" Brown Trout that would make even the most seasoned of anglers jealous!Chris and I stareted off alone and managed to hook a few fish before we finally got one to the net. Just as we released the fish we had the pleasure of Rayn joining us. Ryan only had about an hour to fish and managed to hook into a couple but we didnt get one to the net. After a great lunch Craig joined us for some afternoon fishing. after getting Craig into acouple fish he hooked a massive cutthroat that unfortunately shook the hook. A 23” cuthroat took a dead drifted hares ear and put up a great fight!learned about casting, reading water, finding bottom, landing fish and just all around fun!With the flows being high we looked for pockets that we could get good drifts in and found a good number of fish willing to eat a well presented fly. In the afternoon we found a soft pocket in a riffle that was loaded with feeding fish and hookups were constant.








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