Quote(s) of the Day: I just love being out here on the water!

Fishing Highlights:

Jerry Jim and myself were lucky enough to have some great weather to fish in. The water is still high so we focused our efforts on any soft water we could find. Right now there are limited spots were you can fish so we did not move around to much. It didn't take more than a few casts for Jerry to hook up with his first fish. We found that fish were eating smaller more realistic flies. Flies in the 16-20 range were picking up the most fish. Jerry had a few fish that took his fly and charged into the fast water. This time of year it can be hard to land the bigger fish if they get out into the faster current. We all had a blast sharing stories and catching fish throughout the day. Thanks for a great day on the water guys.

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