Quote(s) of the Day: "There are a lot of fish up here!"

Fishing Highlights:

Fall is in the air an winter is just around the corner. We set out to get one last dry-dropper day in and we had a great one. Rainbows, browns, brook tout, and cutthroat were are out and on the feed. There was a decent amount of interest in the dry, but the droppers produced the majority of the fish.

The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 52-55 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
