Notes

Tyler and I were guides for this trip; we fished some but spent most of our time retying rigs, etc.

John had a banner day catching 17, mostly browns and brooks. I caught another nice one out of the "Prevent Forest Fires" hole. Geoffrey ended the day with 4 and Jacob/Tyler also ended up with about 4. John was catching them mostly on an egg pattern or pheasant tail.

The holes that produced the most were the "Rock" hole and "Prevent Forest Fires" hole. 90% of the fish came from those two locations.
