Fishing Highlights:

The goal today was to tie into some big trout. We hooked several over 20 inches, one pushing 7 pounds, but they all came off. The really big fish eluded us today. We caught plenty of nice rainbows up to 19 inches. Peter did very well with an Amy's Ant. AJ also did well sight nymphing with smaller midge patterns.

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