Fishing Highlights:

The morning was cool and crisp. Mark and Brendon were ready for another day of fishing. We started the morning throwing streamers. This was both Mark and Brendon's first time chucking some meat. Both of them picked up a few fish on a yellow mini sex dungeon. We spent the rest of the morning nymphing. We picked up most of the fish on smaller flies. Size 18-22 were fooling most of the fish. After a great lunch we got back to the water. We switched to dry dropper rigs in the afternoon. We had a handful of fish look up but picked up a lot on the dropper. Thanks for another amazing day on the water. Already looking forward to the next time!

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