Quote(s) of the Day: The weather is perfect!

Fishing Highlights:

Flows are on their way down and the river is warming up. Fish are starting to look up and we are seeing more bugs hatch by the day. Bennett and Elizabeth picked a perfect day to come up and fish. Elizabeth started the day off with a nymph rig and Bennett had a dry dropper rigged up. Fishing started off slow but picked up closer to lunch. Right before lunch Elizabeth hooked up with a big cutthroat who took her for a wild ride. After lunch we found lots of fish looking up at our Amy's Ants. Bennett hooked a handful on the surface however after an hour the fishing seemed to slow down as the clouds rolled in. We had a great day sharing stories and catching fish. Thanks for a great day on the water.

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