Notes

Guided trip in Decker, CO with Levi as our guide.
Ben and Rebecca came with, it was their first time fishing.
Rebecca caught the first fish, probably a 16in cuttbow.
Ben caught the second fish, probably a 16 in brown.
I caught the third and fourth fish. First an 18in cuttbow, and then a 17in rainbow.
Ben hooked into a brown at the second spot but didn't land it.
My first time catching either of these types of fish, I have caught some rainbow-golden hybrids.
Both of these fish were my two biggest trout thus far.
Both of the fish Ben and Rebecca caught would have been my biggest trout.
Very happy they both got a fish and enjoyed the day.

Guide mentioned that the water had dropped from I think 400cfs to 175cfs overnight so fishing was not very productive.
