Quote(s) of the Day: You know what we're catching today? Friendship that what we're catching!
Best Bachelor party you could ask for!
These guys have been friends since high school and it shows! They were catching fish, cracking jokes and ragging on each other (some more than others)! I don't know what was better, the cheeseburgers for lunch our the company I was surrounded by. Thanks again for the great day and we look forward to fishing with you again!
Picked up these gentleman in Denver at 7:30 and headed up to Deckers on a HOT Saturday morning. These guys rarely get to see each other, so the occasion was special. As being part of the festivities for the weekend, this had to be one of the top moments for the extended Bachelor party! With temps in the mid 90's at Deckers expected for the day, we got on the river and got to work immediately. After a short demo, it was on after Evan got on a fish. No one expected Evan to even catch a fish so after that expectations got high. with no disappointment, 4 of the 6 guys got on some nice fish in the morning! Talk about tough fishing but we got the job done! We broke for lunch and had some Guacamole Bacon Cheeseburgers and took a break in the shade from the hot sun. Afterwards we headed down towards the confluence and fished for an hour with little to no luck. A nice swim and a few brews to round up the day and we headed back to town. Great day gents! What a blast!

Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear. The fishing is good.
The water is getting hot and the fishing is tough due to hot water temps! Try to fish the early mornings and late nights until runoff occurs.
