Fishing Highlights:

The mornings as of late have been a little slower. The weather has been a bit iffy as well. We started this morning with on and off rain and the fine smell of wildfires. Jim hooked and landed his first fish on his second cast with a nymph rig. Story took her first fish on a dry dropper rig. Bill fished the dry dropper rig all day. The fish were sporadic in there feeding. The afternoon was a little more normal feeding patterns. The dry dropper did seem to work the best though. We fished mostly pocket water. Hook a few then on to the next hole. Story found a nice run were she took several nice fish and lost several nice fish. It is always a fun day with this group. Thanks for a fun day and we will see you tomorrow.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
