Quote(s) of the Day: I had a very good day of fishing!

Fishing Highlights:

Beautiful day on in the canyon on Lincoln hills today. The water is around 150CFS and crystal clear. Susan and Bill came fishing with me today and we had a good time. Bill landed a monster rainbow on a small midge this morning and after a slip and fall the fish got away unscathed. Susan hooked and landed several nice rainbows and browns in the morning and this afternoon she got a nice cutthroat. One fish shy of the slam a pretty dang good day. Overall the fish were a little finicky today. We would catch a couple on the set up and then they would shut down on it. We would change out, catch a couple fish and they would turn off on it. Susan and Bill stuck with it though and we caught a decent amount of fish today.

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