Quote(s) of the Day: This place is so beautiful!

Fishing Highlights:

Amanda, Judy, and Fitsum picked a beautiful summer day to come up to the club. We have been having some cooler temps and rain in afternoons. The morning started off a bit slow but everyone was able to get some fish to the net. We fished nymph and dry dropper rigs throughout the day. After lunch we saw some PMD's hatching which turned the fish on. It is always exciting watching the birds and fish feed on the hatching insects. Amanda hooked a monster rainbow in the afternoon that took her for a wild ride. Even though fishing was kinda slow we all had a fantastic day together. It was a pleasure taking this crew out on the water.

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