Fishing Highlights:

Jason and Kristen joined me on this Fourth of July for a morning session of fly fishing. It was Jason and Kristen’s first time at Lincoln Hills and Kristen’s very first time fly fishing. After some instruction towards Kristen’s cast and drift she was casting a fly rod very well toward the end of the morning. Through those good presentations she was rewarded with a few nice rainbows to the net. Jason had experience behind him and he adjusted well to the size of fish we have in South Boulder Creek. Jason’s first fish was a fantastic Brown with some big shoulders. Right before the mend of the morning we spotted a nice rainbow in skinny water. He made a cast and he was just outside of the line. We adjusted the cast and smack! A 22” rainbow in a chubby cheranoble. It doesn’t get much better than that. Thanks for a fun morning guys!

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