Fishing Highlights:

The flow has dropped a little bit over the last couple of days. It is running at 33 cfs. The fish have moved around just a little. But they are still more than willing to eat. They are still hitting the dry dropper rig. We did not even use a nymph rod all day. Phil was the first with a couple of nice fish to the net. Spencer was not far behind with a couple taking the dry. We were hooked up steadily all morning with a couple of big fish not making it to the net. The weather was beautiful with temps in the mid fifties. The afternoon stayed hot just like the morning. Fish were taking both the dry and the droppers. Phil and Spencer were hooked up with doubles numerous time today. It is always a pleasure to get the chance to fish with Phil and Spencer. Thanks to the both of you for a fun time today. See you next season!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
