Quote(s) of the Day: That’s the grand slam!

Fishing Highlights:

We had a shorter trip today. We got on the water at 10:30 and put several fish in the net before lunch. The afternoon was great. Kavon and I were doing some trophy hunting and hooked a 24-25” rainbow that was not landed. We had to settle for a 21” rainbow. Garry and Scott put a good number of fish in the net on dry dropper rigs. We had Kavon and Scott both catch a grand slam. Another great day at Lincoln Hills.

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