Fishing Highlights:

The temperature was a little chilly this morning. On the bright side the flow dropped a bit today. It was down to 264 from 325 yesterday. We started off in the deeper runs on the soft seems with a nymph rig. Terri was hooked up right away. Rich was next hooking into a big fish that found it's way to the fast water for a daring escape. He did manage to get some smaller fish to cooperate .The fishing was steady all morning in the slack water. Right before lunch Terri hooked a twenty four inch rainbow that made a sprint to the fast water, but she got it to turn and come back to the inside of the net. After lunch the sun came out, but the wind did not go away. We still managed to go dry dropper with great success. We had one take on the dry, most of the fish were taking the droppers underneath. It fished great throughout the rest of the afternoon on that same rig. Always a great time when you get to spend the day with the Kaudy's. Thanks for a great time today. Hope to see you soon.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Slightly Off.
