Fishing Highlights:

The day started out beautiful as we headed into the canyon section of Lincoln Hills. The Drakes were popping early and we had great success of Drake nymphs. Terry was the first to hook into a fish but it was a short battle before the fish threw the hook. It wasn't long before he was hooked up again on a nice brown trout which we got to the net. Brian was right behind him with his own Rainbow and after the grip and grin was right back into another nice rainbow. The two brothers went back and forth with the hook ups and landed several fish through out the day. Not to bad for a couple of first timers to Colorado Flyfishing.

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