    Default Very Cool water temps on the HI today.

    Wow, the HI was at 56 degrees today. I couldn't believe it. I began fishing with a guy from GA at the stair steps at about 7 am. I caught and released 15 Rainbows and one lone Brown today. I lost a handful as usual. The fish took with gusto today, I reckon from the cold water. There were caddis in the morning and yellow stones, and some sulfurs mid morning. I fished with either a BH prince or a gray Czech nymph and a partridge and yellow as a trailing fly.

    They really liked an emerger today. The weather was fantastic and with low humidity. I stopped at noon when the water came on and stopped to chat with Don Denney from TU. They were doing a bug inventory at 1 pm at Reliance Fly&Tackle. I had a real good day thanks to the cold water. Not every summer you get to experience that on the HI.

    That is great news about the cool water! I've been concerned about the river because of the drought, glad its still doing well!

    Glad you had a good day. I wish we could have teamed up, but that's the way it goes. Trevor and I are going to the SoHo tomorrow, hopefully we will have the same luck!

    Kevin!

    Yeah, I've been thinking about contacting you for a while, but after my Finland trip and all I needed some recovering at home. I'm tied up next weekend with TU for some stream sampling over Cosby way. I don't know for sure where I will be fishing in the afternoon. Good Luck tomorrow and good Luck with Montana. You are going this month right?

    Keep in touch.

    Hey Kev,

    Make sure to give us a report from Montana when you get back. I leave the following Saturday. I heard it's hot and low out there.

    Good luck
