Notes

Well, we made up for the lost fish yesterday by catching 1 big brown and 2 big rainbows. The brown came from the "Forest Fire" hole and the rainbows came out of Tyler's aquarium hole. The three boys had a great time catching a bunch of stockers and I spend most of my time either helping them or dropping heavy weighted rigs down deep into the holes for larger fish which ended in a very successful trip.

Ethan and Will spent some time wrestling in the frigid cold waters which provided a ton of entertainment. They were catching so many fish that I think they got bored and had to expend some energy elsewhere. They fell in or got wet from wrestling so much they ran out of dry clothes.

Very successful and entertaining day on the river!
