Quote(s) of the Day: This beats staying at the hotel!

Fishing Highlights:

Today was a perfect day to escape the heat of the city and get on the river. I picked Riley and Bob up at their hotel this morning and we had a lovely drive up the hill getting to know each other. The day started off a little slow but after jumping around to a few different holes we managed to get a few fish to the net. After a few hours of fishing we took a quick little break for lunch under a nice shade tree. While we were eating lunch the clouds started to move in so we wrapped it up and got back to fishing. Just as we were finishing up the day we were greeted by a muskrat with nice size trout he had proudly caught!

Summer is here and the fishing is great in Denver and Boulder, Colorado. Look for trout to be waiting beside the bank in hopes of finding a big grasshopper or beetle. We are seeing lots of wildlife this summer. Moose, elk, deer and bald eagles are commonly seen throughout the year. The fishing is great now is a great time to get the whole family on the water.  The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 19- degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
