Quote(s) of the Day: "That's the way to start the day!"

Fishing Highlights:

The bugs were a little slow to materialize today. They would just start to come out then they would disappear. Spencer started the day off with a nice twenty five inch rainbow that ate the dropper under a dry fly .The fish made a couple of quick runs up and down before he decided he did not want to play anymore. Phil took a couple of nice fish on smaller size dries. Brad was down river hooking fish on the dropper patterns as well. The morning was off just a tad. The afternoon brought up a couple of fish on the larger dry patterns. Everybody stayed hooked up pretty regularly as the day went on. It is always a great time with this group. Thanks everyone for a fun time on the water. Hope to see you soon.

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