The weather for Friday was partly cloudy air temperature in the mid 80s, Saturday had falling air temperature and rain at start time continuing throughout the day with hard rain
starting around 11 am lasting until around 1:30. Sky cleared by end of fishing. Temperature during periods of rain was 55 degrees, warming to 65 degrees by end of day. Sunday
had morning air temperature of 45 degrees, clear skies and air temperature of 58 degrees by noon. Water temperature was in the mid seventies throughout the 3 days of fishing.
Over the 3 days a total of 31 fish were boated and released successfully, 2 fish were over 40 inches with most fish in the mid 30s. There are a large class of fish approaching the
40 inch thresh hold which will make for big numbers of large fish starting next year.
