Default Colorado Cutthroat Paradise

Spent the morning in the James Peak Wilderness fishing for some of the most eager cutthroats I've ever seen! What a day! Literally one after another.

Looks like a cutthroat with a very large fin. Nice fish though, looks like a good time. Its always fun to fish for cutthroat. There probably my favorite because of the places they live.

Well done! The JPW and the Indian Peaks are always a welcome retreat away from the big city, and so close. Gotta love it.
