Quote(s) of the Day: Great day on the water with a great family!

Fishing Highlights:

We met up at Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing Club at 8 A.M. on a chilly friday morning. We started our day out teaching Ollie and Max about all of the basics of fly fishing. We learned how to tie up a fly pole, how to choose bugs for the river, how to read the water and learned the history of Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing Club. After a good 1 Hour demo, we headed out to the river for what would be a great day. We worked with Dry Droppers, Nymph Rigs and even Streamers! Having success on all cylinders, we spent most of our day covering water and targeting fish. We had a great afternoon and ended the day with a nice 6 pound rainbow! It was a joy to get out on the river with you guys and I hope to see you soon!

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