Quote(s) of the Day: That’s my biggest trout ever.

Fishing Highlights:

We had to break some ice and cast through slush today but the fish didn’t care. If we had a good drift, they would eat it. Joe landed some nice rainbows and cutbows including a 23” 6 pound hybrid. It was certainly one of the larger fish in the creek right now. Thanks for a great day on the water, Joe. I hope to see you again next year.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 28-31 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
