Quote(s) of the Day: That was my biggest fish!

Fishing Highlights:

It was a hot day up at Lincoln Hills. The weather was hot and so was the fishing. The Kakel family is one fishy family. Right out of the gates I was super impressed with the whole family's skill level. Chase and Dylan are both fantastic anglers for their age. Early in the day Dylan and I sight fished a huge rainbow but unfortunately she broke us off but we got a nice 24" inch rainbow later in the morning. Fishing picked up throughout the morning. We had a nice double were Emily and Dylan were both hooked up. Chase helped me net the two fish. After lunch we moved up the canyon and found more fish. We caught fish on streamers, nymphs, and dry flies. Thanks for a wonderful day on the water and I look forward to fishing with you guys next weekend.

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