Quote(s) of the Day: Beautiful Fishing Hole!
Jacob and Nathan had an awesome time fishing South boulder creek. Jacob had some prior experience while fly fishing a handful of times, as for Nathan this was his first time out. We started the day with a 10-minute hike into Deadwood. On the hike, we went over the different species of trout, hatches and aquatic bug life, and learning goals for the day. After a casting instruction we began getting into some fish. Jacob and Nathan quickly picked up nymphing and were able to land multiple fish before breaking for lunch. As the average size for fish varied between 12 – 16 inches. Nathan had the opportunity to fight a larger rainbow trout in the 20+ inch range that ended up breaking the line! As this was Nathans first time, it was nice to see him put together a foundation of fly fishing! At the end of the day, we spent some time using a dry flies and landed a nice brown on the way back to the cars. Thank you both for a great day on the water!

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