Fishing Report 6/25/21
One of the things we ask people who walk in the door of our store is "how was fishing? Did you catch fish?" The response lately has been "yes! Maybe not all over two pounds but definitely nice fish." There were a couple of hot days where the fish were lower in the water than what was expected and it slowed some. Most people quickly adapted, using sinking line on a fly rod or an extra weight on their line if they are using a spin rod. The stream is in very good shape and, because no major rain is expected, the stream conditions should only improve.

Quote of the Week
You know when they have a fishing show on tv? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don't want to eat the fish, they just want to make it late for something.
