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.

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
