Quote(s) of the Day: This fishery is amazing!

Fishing Highlights:

Today felt like fall was here already with lower flows and air temps colder in the morning. Davis and John joined me for a session on boulder river ranch to work on their nymph fishing skills. As we started the day, Davis was hooked up almost immediately and stayed steady throughout the morning. John was consistently seeing great action on his rod as well. They both made great progress today with hookset, line management and fighting fish. We went through each hole breaking down the “trouty “ water finding fish everywhere we stepped foot in. The fish were keyed in on the smaller bugs today on boulder river ranch beats. Sizes 20-22 rs2 in grey, wd40 in grey, black beauties and chocolate thunder did the trick today. It was awesome to see you guys progress and get better with each and every cast. See you next time guys!

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