How's Fishing?

This weekend has been very busy.  Sixteen people brought up fish that were 2 pounds or better.  With the perfect weather and the large numbers of big trout, everyone who can be here -  is here.
 There won't be a report next week because there is no fishing allowed in the Spring Branch until November 11.  I will send the final tag numbers and some more great pictures from our photographer,  George Sharon Franks.  Thanks for all the effort and time you took, George Sharon, taking pictures to make this report happen.
