High Water Guide Day

Yesterday I had the pleasure of rowing Bob and his son Jack down the Tully. Bob and Jack are new to the sport and high water was not going to stop us. After about and hour of instruction we were headed down the river.

With high water and muddy conditions we knew it was going to be tough. Bob was tight to a nice rainbow about 15 minutes into the float. Next thing I know Jack is yelling with excitement as he rolled yet another nice rainbow. We floated from the dam down to the Paper Mill, only seeing one other angler the whole time. We managed a few more fish and had a good bit of fun while doing so.

The water is still a bit high but the water temps have come down to the low 60s and fish are loving the cooler temps.

Here are a few from the float:
