Quote(s) of the Day: I have learned so much today!

Fishing Highlights:

Today was a perfect day to spend up at Lincoln Hills. Being high up in the mountains we were able to escape some of the heat. The flows were around 230cfs when we started fishing in the morning. Both Mike and Blake were eager to learn about the sport. We spent some time working on rigging and knots first then headed down to the river to work on casting. Blake was the first to hook up with a nice rainbow then Mike got a few right before lunch. After lunch we headed up the canyon and found some great spots to get our lines wet. We threw on a streamer and had a lot of action from fish. Lots of chases and a few eats. Mike got his first ever fish on a streamer. We really had a great time out there today. Mike and Blake both learned a lot. Hope to see you guys out there soon.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
