Today we fished Keswick Reservoir and although it was a little on the slow side, we hooked some really great fish!  Mornings have been tough with heavy water releases creating a lot of unfishable water due to the high flows and the presence of floating moss.  As the flows were cut back later in the morning, we managed to fish some of our best known areas and came up with some savage takedowns and line peeling rainbows!  Well worth the effort we put in on the water today.  It was a full day of fishing, but the weather was perfect and so was the boat company.
