Re: Two days to fish outside of Denver next week. Suggestions?
We (Blood Knot Magazine) are sponsoring a fly fishing competition in Pueblo in early January. We fished that run below the dam last week (55 degrees and sunny) and had a great time. BWO (size 20-22) hatches for the dry fly enthusiasts, but get deep for the 20 inchers. Lots of great fish there.
We are currently getting a lot of snow so it might change things a bit. Pueblo is probably the closest, most convenient tailwater. As much as I love Cheeseman, Frying Pan, or the Blue, driving in bad weather to fish in the snow is not everyone's idea of fun.
Hope this helps,
