I'm back!
 
Ugh...don't you hate it when work gets in the way of fishing?

I was only able to get out on the water "sporadically" since October, but here's some highlights...

Now that winter is in full effect, I'm hoping to get out on the water more! The pictures from the Pan are from last Sunday. I love how the weather drives a lot of fisherman away! I was the only person up there and I had the toilet bowl to myself all morning!

I'm looking foward to more winter fishing! I only wish that the Blue in Silverthorne had a little more flow...

Great pics Vitesse!
Glad to see you got out and were successful.
Thanks for sharing. I'm quite jealous!

Nice fish. Number three is a bruiser. I made it up there this last Fall and didn't even get a chance to wet a line. Drove down the Blue through Silverthorne. That was actually choice number two for getting a couple of quick casts in, but I ended up bringing the rod for nothing. It was a big family thing and you know how those things go. :rolleyes:

So Im thinking about taking my father-in-law and brother-in-law up to fish the blue next week (Christmas week). Ive been hearing that fishing below Dillon is where its at right now, but we may just fish through the mall area and let the women shop (haven't decided yet).

Below GM is better. Flows are at about 150, perfect for that stretch. In town is fishing ok. Still lots of fish, they are just very picky and the fishing is VERY technical. Drop down to 6x and 7x tippet and expect a few break off's.

Good luck and post up a review!

Blue has some real pigs in it. I get a little jealous seeing all the nice pics from friends on fb.

Nice pics can't wait to fly fish in Colorado someday soon.

Those pan pics are killing me right now - one of my fav winter spots. I'm hoping that in a few weeks, I'll be able to be out there.

And that 25 incher isn't real - that's just a fantastic photographer, plus the fact that you have skinny, little fingers :D

Glad to see you out fishing again!! I did some winter fishing at Deckers last week and caught a nice looking brown. Maybe we could meet up on the Blue one of these days?
