A memorable day of fly fishing!

The fish were cooperative.  The water was low but slightly off-color in
the morning, allowing us to use a variety of flies, mainly nymphs, and
heavy tippets. Most of the strikes were anything but subtle! We were
into fish the whole time and caught five species of trout, including
brook, rainbows, browns, cut-bows and cutthroat trout.  The fish made it
through the winter in great shape and have been very aggressive!

Multiple fish were hooked in just about every area we attempted.
Usually the strikes would come quickly, as there had not been much
fishing pressure, and the trout were very aggressive.

The highlight was the first fish of the day--a 23 inch monster!  Many
other big fish were caught, but that giant was the most exciting.

In trout news:
The weather has been beautiful for some time.  The fishing has been
exceptional!  Especially on the private waters.  We have had some
great trips on the public water, and South Park is starting to get good.  
The river fishing should continue to improve, prior to the start of runoff
in mid-May.
We had an absolute wonderful time, I gave your organization kudos on
my facebook.   It was a fantastic experience, had no idea I'd enjoy it as
much as I did!   Provided is a link that Nick created that captures all the
fishing pictures.  Please let us know if we can provide any other details
for you.
Thank you again!
