Fishing Highlights:

This is just as about as close as you can get to a perfect day. The weather was great all day, the flow is perfect ,and the fish are eating well. Leo stepped in the water this morning and set the bar pretty high.Matt and Patrick did the same .Everyone got hooked up early and it never stopped. Leo was the first one with a twenty four inch fish. He spotted it and made one cast to it and it took it.He had a nice little fight before bringing to the net.Matt saw one sitting in a non assuming spot. Made one cast then landing his as well. Patrick hunted his big one for a couple of minutes ,before he hooked and landed his as well. Great job guys! We had dry dropper rigs on all day. Not once did we pick up a nymph rod. Fish were eating the dry as well as the dropper.Matt put on a double dry in the afternoon and had the same results. It was an absolute blast to be on the water today with this group. Thanks to everyone one for a incredible day.

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