Quote(s) of the Day: "The fishing is just ridiculous at this point!"

Fishing Highlights:

Water is staying steady during the day in the 900's at this point in time which has the fish on a good schedule for feeding. Bob wanted to see what the river looked and fished like in high water and to say the least I think he was pleasantly surprised. We started the morning off with some streamers and didn't prove effective after switching colors of flies and retrieves so we went to a european rig and right now with this amount of water is paramount in fishing. After a while of catching fish, Bob looked over at me and said "The fishing is just ridiculous at this point." Followed by a comment of "I'm glad i came up here today to experience what you talk about when it comes to fishing high water up here!" Don't be afraid of higher flows on south boulder creek because it can be one heck of a time catching fish and learning techniques. And you can do what we did in the afternoon and spend time on the lake streamer fishing! Thanks for another awesome day Bob!

The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
