Quote(s) of the Day: That's a Lincoln Hills fish.

Fishing Highlights:

The morning was excellent. As soon as we hit the water, Marty and Neal were catching fish. Marty landed a very nice 20 inch rainbow and several smaller fish. Neal landed a few smaller browns and rainbows. He also hooked a giant rainbow in "granite wall." Marty landed a stunning cutbow out of granite wall. After lunch some heavy clouds and light rain pushed in and that seemed to really shut down the fishing. Several more were landed still. The great dry fly fishing on our upper properties should be right around the corner.

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