Well in typical hot and cold fashion Edith slowed yesterday. Still into around 8-10 fish but nothing compared to the 5th. Still managed a nice football of a rainbow and the weather was unbelievable! Nice racoon eyes from my shades. Only a couple brookies to mention of both around a pound. Best...

Pike Mountain lakes have been steady. The dry fly activity in the evening with caddis dry flies has been good. Tom Thumbs have been good producers as well as Tri-wing sedges.
It was a little better before the cold front moved in...
