Quote(s) of the Day: "That is the biggest Rainbow I have ever caught"
“I can see that big one right there! I think he is teasing us!”

Fishing Highlights:

I really enjoyed helping a young kid land his biggest trout ever. The smile on his face made my day.It was family day today on the river today with the Kakel family. The morning hours fished great with everyone catching a few fish a piece. Before the lunch hour Lois and Pete had their eyes set on a nice sized rainbow bit wasnt willing to eat a presentation but Pete and Lois did land quite a few fish in that same hole. After lunch we were up in tunnel working the soft water as much as we could. Chris found quite a few fish in the first run but it was hard to land the fish with the fast water needed to cross in order to land them. Still exciting to see! Dylan landed a few nice fish throughout the afternoon. Right before the end of the day Dylan and Pete had a double which resulted in a great photo.


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