Nice. That one pretty fish looks 100% colored up bow to me. I'm jealous.

I did some recon on the Big T the last two days. Most of the river is ice free except for some of the shadier sections. Caught some nice rainbows and a decent brown at the Big T tailwater on #20-24 midges.

Lakes are pretty much iced off, might go hit a few reservoirs today from shore. Being underemployed has its perks!

I too have had some good luck on the Poudre this week. Made it up the canyon earlier and ice is starting to come off quickly. Planning on spending the weekend up there, but this could put a damper on my plans.

Oh, fantastic. Fire season has already started? Is it that dry up there? It is March for goodness sake. My friends in Colorado always talk about mud season and big snows in the spring. Wow, crazy. Hope you can still get a bit of fishing in.

Talking Re: Start of Spring in Colorado

Spring has arrived in the Vail Valley. With temps. reaching into the 60's this week a lot of the Eagle River has started to open up. I was out the other day from about 4 to 6 pm on a favorite hole and figured as the bows start to get into their spawn groove id try to "peg some beads". I was able to bring in 2 18+" on the egg and another few on a #22 blk zebra midge and a #24 grey fw rs2. Tight Lines!

Yeah, its pretty dry up in northern CO at least. Doesn't look good for the summer; but fishing was fantastic last weekend and they have the fire at 75% containment. Just going to have to fish as much as I can.
