Quote(s) of the Day: That was a big fish, my arm is wore out from that one.

Fishing Highlights:

We are still in run-off season at Lincoln Hills and the fishing is holding on. Paul came to fish with us from up north and we had a good time together. His first fish that he hooked a bruiser and it gave him a heck of fight. Eventually it turned tail and used the current to its advantage and spit the hook. Paul landed a handful of fish in the morning and the afternoon picked up with better results using nymph and dry dropper rigs. We even got some eats towards the end of the day on the hopper pattern and that was a great way to end the day.

Wading is difficult but the fishing is still good. A wading staff may be of use during this high water season. To fish effectively find the bottom of the river and then fish up. Make sure you are snagging bottom every five casts or so, this will ensure that your flies are getting down deep to the fish.  The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Stained.
