Quote(s) of the Day: Wow I lost track if how many fish I caught a couple hours ago!

Fishing Highlights:

After learning how to cast, Richard was able to present flies properly almost every drift. After a bit of practice, Richard hooked a fish three casts in a row. After losing the first two to the fast current, he landed the third fish, a beautiful 19” rainbow trout.

The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
