Fishing Highlights:

What an fantastic day on the creek! Barry and Doug have fished with us before but wanted to see what else the club offered. They decided to give deadwood placer a try, with the small amount of snow recieved last week it had the creek in great shape running right over 60 Cfs we focused on the classic hopper dropper rig hitting any seam or deep pockets. The fish played picky with a couple giving us a run for our money. As the day progressed we started to see a lot of blue wing olive life we went to double drys and it proved to be the ticket with Barry and Doug both landing over 5 fish before lunch. With just a little window of sunlight we decided to focus on just the bigger holes where most fish were stacked. Doug got the surprise of the day when a giant rainbow hit the hopper as he went to recast! All in all and excellent day on the water with 2 fine gentlemen!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
