Fishing Highlights:

I spent most of the morning getting Forrest started fly fishing and for a never ever at the sport he quickly picked it up the basics. Marty hooked and landed a nice fish on his first cast and Bill also was picking up a good number of nice fish on a dry dropper. The fishing was hot at times and a little slower at times, all seemed to depend on the insect activity. A memorable moment for me was having a hummingbird land on my boot.

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