I will join in buddy. I am going into my second winter here in Colorado. Last year around mid October I just kinda quit fishing. The reservoirs near me closed, and eventually froze. I could have done some river fishing but I didn't have waders, and told myself I needed them to get in the deep water where fish were.
Truth is I was just giving myself excuses. I don't know why. I didn't take the fly gear out until April! No more excuses. I figure nov and dec will be easy. But Jan and feb will take more commitment.
I found a tailwater that stays a bit warmer than the rest, and a few other spots where fish feed over winter.
November contributions and most likely all of my winter contributions are from the Arkansas River in Colorado.
Wild Brown trout from the freestone on a thirty year old fiberglass rod my dad gave me, and my grandfathers equally old click and pawl.
Stocker released from the hatchery. Caught him in the tailwater section. Cutbow I think? Not sure. I have caught this type before elsewhere.
