Our first day of fishing on this trip. And, it was a great one. It was also a cold one. It was about 20 when we started out for breakfast at 8 AM. We headed to the Beaverhead River at about 9:15 and it had warmed to 24. We got on the river about 10:30 and had our first fish by 11.
Both the fishing and catching were very good today. The biggest hasle of the day was ice building up in the guides on our rods that kept the line from going through. We would have to stop and de-ice every once-in-a-while until about noon or so. We caught about 20 fish between the two of us. Better than a lot of days on a river. Our guide, Ton Cornell, was a great guide for us.
