Fishing Highlights:

We had some awesome weather for today's trip. Cooler temps and some cloud cover. Fishing was great today with fish eating a little of everything. We picked up fish on dries, streamers, and nymphs. With the lower flows we are seeing more bugs starting to hatch. Doug caught some really nice rainbows in the morning that got airborne a few times. After a great lunch we got back to fishing. We through on a grasshopper pattern and found that fish were eating it almost every cast. Doug hooked a couple really nice fish off the surface. Later in the day the fishing slowed down but Jim was able to find some fish with his streamer. Overall we had a fantastic day on the water.

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear.
