Quote(s) of the Day: I always enjoy coming up here. It really is a beautiful place!

Fishing Highlights:

The water is on the downward trend and crystal clear. Mike and Jim came up to fish Lincoln Hills today and had a pretty good day despite the fish being a little fickle in the morning. Mike hooked his first bow on a Chubby Chernobyl and quickly followed it up with another on the dropper. Jim was fishing a three fly rig under an indicator and landed four fish very quickly. Then they slowed down for a while and it wasn't until around 11:00 that the fish started hitting again on a regular basis. The afternoon fished much better as we caught fish on both dries and droppers. Overall it was a good day with fish in the net and lots of laughs.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
