Several New Fly Fishers!

Beautiful, sunny, and not too hot day today.  Slight chance of rain this afternoon.  Much better chances for rain tomorrow and Friday.  Slight chances for rain over the weekend with temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s.  Next week looks like a return of the upper 90s by mid week.  Ugh!

some fish on this.  His best fish of the morning was a nice 17 inch rainbow.  He managed to finesse this fish in on 7X!  Stan had John and Garland from Oklahoma out in the rain, and they were catching on the white grub.

Stan took a couple more new fly fishers out on Saturday, Caleb and Sandy from California.  This always looked like
