Fishing Highlights:

The wind kicked up on us a little this morning, chasing most of the bugs away. The fish on the other hand were not messing around. Jim hooked his first couple of fish on a nymph rig. Story stayed hot fishing a dry dropper rig. She landed a nice twenty three inch rainbow.Bill was hooked up all morning with a dry dropper rig as well. The fishing stayed amazing all morning. In the afternoon it was a little slow to start off. After a few fly changes we picked up right where we left off from the morning. Fish were taking the dry as well as the dropper patterns all day. This group is always fun to take out. Thanks to everyone for a fun couple of days. Hope to see you soon.

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