3 days at Spinney Reservoir

 Darlene and I had great fishing days on the lake.
 The wind was NOT an issue for 3 days.  That's unusual.
A guy fishing close to us caught this 40 inch pike on a fly rod.  WOW!!!!

Guides Trip

 Lucas started and finished the day using streamers.  He was successful!!!
 Alex got in the action using streamers.  Both Alex and Lucas did all the rowing. 
The senior citizen got to fish all day.
I finally had to change this streamer.  It was completely worn out.
It was a great day to be on the river with 2 good friends.

Another good caddis day!

 The next 2 days are predicted to be cooler.  This will slow down the run-off. 
There still is a lot of snow in the mountains.
The caddis' were around Swissvale today.  Some nice fish were taken on the dry/dropper rig and also the double dry rig.
