Quote(s) of the Day: The fish were on the small side but they made up for it in beauty!

Fishing Highlights:

We had some fish come up to take dry flies on the surface. A swung emerger brought takes at the end of the drift. Bill caught trout on droppers and dries which made for an amazing day here at Lincoln Hills. Drakes, PMDs, and Yellow Sallies were all active.

The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Off-Color.
