Quote(s) of the Day: "Did you see that!"

Fishing Highlights:

Phenomenal! This section of river is in it's prime season. There seems to be a least a fish or three in every pocket and seam and there are countless pockets. Hoppers kicking up everywhere as we walked to along the river. Do yourself a favor and check Espy Ranch out.

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