Quote(s) of the Day: This is unreal!
Notes:
Gary, Josh, and Patrick had a great day on the water. This was everyone’s first time fly fishing and experiencing the sport. We started the day by going over the proper casting techniques and how to land fish. We then reviewed the days hatches, water temps, and levels. As the weather was nice in the morning everyone was able to land a fish and understand the basics of fly fishing. Josh started us off by landing a beautiful 16-inch rainbow trout. Patrick and Gary quickly followed by landing multiple brown trout and cutthroat trout. After moving into granite hole, the bite really turned on, trout were seen eating size 14 pheasant tails, guides choice hare’s ears in size 14, and smaller black RS2s and baetis in (size 18 – 20). In the early afternoon as PMDs started to hatch, we used small Barr’s Emerges and spent some time throwing dry flies and soft hackles. Before breaking for lunch Josh was able to land the big fish of the day at 24 inches! Thank you all for a great day!

Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 60+ degrees and Crystal Clear. The fishing is fantastic.
