Quote(s) of the Day: Brookie!! And there is the grand slam!

Fishing Highlights:

Today was a good day to be on the water. The fish were eating dry flies and streamers and we caught the first slam of the season at Lincoln hills. Jeremy was on fire in the afternoon and caught all the species of the slam in just 2.0 hours of fishing. Steve did really well on dry flies as well and landed several very nice rainbows and cutbows. John and Mike worked the water with dries and streamers, landing several fish in the 20-22" range. Overall it was a very good day of fishing and got these boys ready for their next fly fishing adventure on the Green River. Good luck guys!

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