High water, but fishing is very good.  The larger fish are eating well with hard strikes being the norm. Landing the lunkers in very high water presents some interesting challenges!!  Today our anglers were up to the task; Todd and Jerry both hooked up consistently throughout the day.  Several very respectable trout made their way into the net, and many more escaped just out of reach!  A lot of nice rainbows came to hand along with a couple beautifully colored brown trout.  The high water fly fishing has been exceptional and anglers have been learning a lot of new techniques to hook and land large trout in these conditions!!  Look for the flow to dramatically decrease in the next couple weeks.

Todd with a great bow!!
