Quote(s) of the Day: That was a crazy fight!

Fishing Highlights:

Tom and Tyler were looking forward to some dry fly fishing now that the water has come down. Although we did get a few fish on dries today, the great summer hatches just aren't quite hear yet. They should be coming in the next couple of weeks with PMDs, drakes, yellow sallies, caddis, and more. Once it became apparent that dry fly fishing wasn't going to be the ticket, we stuck with nymphing and it produced some nice trout. We had the opportunity to sight nymph to some of the larger fish at Lincoln Hills. We managed to hook into several fish well over 20 inches and landed a few of them. Tom had a 20" rainbow that was pushing 5 lbs and Tyler landed a 23" rainbow that was pushing 6 lbs. On two occasions we had fish take off on blistering runs but only one of those fish was landed. It was an incredible fight and it seemed that the physics were against us but somehow that fish made it to the net. It was another great day at Lincoln Hills.

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