Quote(s) of the Day: “Susan, That’s a huge fish for this creek!”

Fishing Highlights:

Today was Bill and Susan’s first time on singing river ranch. We ran dry dropper rigs all day finding fish wiling to eat both the dry and the dropper. Bill found great success with an HL variant on the surface. We did some downsizing in tippet and a smaller dry fly in Susans rig. As soon as we made the switch we started hitting fish. Including a 22” rainbow which is an absolute beast for bear creek. When she hooked that fish we both said holy cow, that’s a big fish. We worked our way up river picking apart different runs and seems finding fish willing to eat in every run. Thanks for a great day guys, see you soon!

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
