Quote(s) of the Day: That fish is huge!

Fishing Highlights:

Many big fish were hooked today. The fish were hot and as a result many of them ran for the fast water and were not landed. Cory landed a solid 20" rainbow in the morning. Kyle and Brian both hooked fish well over 20 inches but they were not landed. In the afternoon the fishing picked up slightly. Brian landed a 24-25" rainbow towards the end of the trip. The fish were generally feeding on small PMD, baetis, and midge nymphs sizes 16-22. Overall, another great day at Lincoln Hills.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
