Fishing Highlights:

I picked up Tyler and Dudley at thier hotel downtown and we had a great drive into the hills. After a nice hike and a few stops along the way to eat some raspberries we reached our first fishing spot. Dudley was a quick learner and started off the day with a small but beautiful brook trout. Tyler took a little longer to get on the board but when he did we managed to land a really nice 18 in rainbow trout this was followed shortly by decent brown trout. We managed to get out of the city for the morning and had a great time on the water.

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