Quote(s) of the Day: Now that fish is a dandy!

Fishing Highlights:

Kirk and I started off low on the railroad beat, picking our way through pocket water, fishing to picky trout, reluctantly feeding on midges. We picked some fish near the edges, but it took until about 11am for the fishing to really turn on, when the sallies, drakes and pmds emerged. From that point forward we took fish on dries, emergers, nymphs and streamers about every 5 minutes until the end of the day. There were so many highlights, from fishing double dries and getting them slapped on the surface on nearly every cast, to landing 4 fish well over 20". The fish were big, healthy, strong - the day provided perfect weather, and perhaps the best is the sincere comradery between a group of addicted fisherman.

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