Quote(s) of the Day: Lincoln Hills Park is fishing very well right now

Hopper-dropper and dry-dropper are the way to go on Lincoln Hills Park right now. Trout are spread out throughout the entire river so work each run and riffle methodically for the best results.

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