Quote(s) of the Day: This is by far the most fish I have ever caught in one day! I can't believe how easy you guys make it all seem.

Fishing Highlights:

The morning was good but the few hours right after lunch were even better. After a delicious meal and a short ride to the lower part of Boulder River Ranch, we were hooking fish on dry droppers left and right, and even doubled up both anglers few times. Larry did his thing, hooking and landing fish successfully through the pockets and Helayne worked the riffles hooking multiple fish all by herself. Great job you two!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
