Quote(s) of the Day: "Whoa, that is a big fish".

Fishing Highlights:

The best part of the day was watching my boys fish. It makes my heart soar when the land a nice fish. I also saw a nice large rainbow and after several drifts he did not like what I was throwing, after a quick switch of flies he ate on the first cast. I love it when a plan comes together.

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