no crowds and willing fish. ok, it was 14 degrees when I stepped out of my car in the morning, but there were NO fisherman. Just me and by fishing partner. Blue skies, the sun was out and no wind. ran into a couple of duck and upland bird hunters, but no other fisherman all day. Fish were down low and taking nymphs all day. Intermediate line was used all day. Very steady from 12:00 - 1:30. Missed a million takes and landed quite a few fish. The west end seems to have larger fish but we never boated anything larger than 18 inches. smallest were 13 and a lot of 15-16 inch fish. Strong fights and beautiful fish. There are still 5 days to fish - so get over there.
