Default What I did over the 4th of July

I spent the last week in Colorado's Weminuche wilderness.

We hiked/fished up one drainage, then along the Continental Divide for a couple of days, then down another drainage. Some of the best spots we fished were many miles from any trailhead, protected by steep, thick bushwhacking. I'd be surprised if they get fished by 3 parties a year.

The fish were mostly browns and brookies, and pretty naive. 20 fish per hour was pretty much par for the course. I tried the craziest dry flies in my box, the big size 12 bright orange monstrosities I normally only use as strike indicators. The fish loved them.

The water was relatively shallow and crystal clear, so it was almost all sight fishing and you got to watch the fish really go after the fly.
It was an altogether amazing time.
