Fishing Highlights:

The flow has finally dropped to a great level. When we started today it was at 175.Mia started the party off with a nymph rig landing her first couple of fish right away. John Ryan was next landing a beautiful brown with amazing colors. John took the dry dropper and went to work landing a nice twenty four inch rainbow. After a couple of hours it was pretty much dry droppers the rest of the day for everyone. The fish are coming up for dries as well as the droppers. After lunch we headed up river a little.Mia was met by a lot of fish wanting the dry fly. John Ryan found a honey hole where he hooked several nice fish. He hooked a giant rainbow two times in a row.A great time ,with a great family to be on the water with today. Thanks everyone for making it a amazing day. Hope to see you soon.

The fishing is great.  Overcast skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Crystal Clear.
