Fishing Highlights:

Flows are just about perfect now at Lincoln Hills. Bugs are hatching and fish are on the feed. The best fishing seems to be from 11am through 3pm. We are seeing Grey Drakes, Yellow Sallies, Caddis, and PMD's. It was Tom's first time fly fishing and he took to it very quickly. We stated the morning with the nymph rig but transitioned to the dry dropper rig once we started seeing fish feed on the surface. Tom hooked countless fish in the morning followed by even more in the afternoon. Cheryl took to fly fishing very quickly too putting in almost all the species of the grand slam but could not find a brown trout. Thanks for a amazing day on the water guys!

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