Quote(s) of the Day: Walking up into the canyon is so secluded and beautiful - it really feels like the middle of nowhere!

Fishing Highlights:

By far and away the coolest part of the day was seeing 4 species caught including a tiger trout! The Tunnel beat was absolutely gorgeous, crystal clear and bugs are starting to hatch. Susan had a fish on up there that must've been 8 pounds. Later in the day bill was fishing streamers from an up and across presentation and had a fish slam the fly as soon as it hit the water like a dry fly - really cool to see. Great times with fun people in a perfect setting!

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