Quote(s) of the Day: Look at all those fish - its amazing. Just being here is incredible - the mountains and wildlife are things you don't see where we live. Set the hook! Set the hook!

Fishing Highlights:

It was really fun to fish some young guys from the East Coast today. They took to fly fishing really quickly and were able to dial in many aspects of dry/dropper, double nymph and streamer fishing techniques. Hugh was like a mink on the river, moving all around and dissecting each run with accuracy - it paid off - many nice fish to hand throughout the day. Although, one monster escaped in the cliff run .... it will haunt you my friend, it will haunt you. Conor had the patience of Tibetan Monk ... focused and willing to put in the effort for selective trout - this worked out well also and I was grateful to be present for his first trout every caught on the fly rod ... very cool! Good job man. Overall, the day was a highlight reel with such a dramatic setting, good friends and several healthy big fish in the net.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
