Quote(s) of the Day: "It is really nice when the wind gust stop"!

Fishing Highlights:

I am not sure the weather conditions could have been much worse than they were this morning when we first arrived. Clouds and snow moving in with Gail force winds met us when we got to the river. We could not even see in the water due to the ripples and white caps. In between the gust we were able to get the flies to hit the water. Hats all it took before Charles was into his first fish of the day. Stuart was next with his first as well. The flows are a little low ,so we went with a dry dropper rig. After about an hour of the wind gust it finally slowed enough to be decent. The fish started to eat on a regular basis. Charles hooked and landed a nice twenty two inch rainbow .Stuart landed a nice rainbow in that same size range as well. After lunch we moved down river a bit .The fish were on the feed .Charles with another big rainbow. Stuart hooked into a giant rainbow that was completely rude and dashed away down stream. Thanks to the both of you for a fun time on the water today.

The fishing is great.  Overcast skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
