This is pretty cool!!
I don't know what I'm more excited about, the fact that there are so many people who are willing to discuss their hard earned knowledge of this amazing sport, or the fact that there are so many people in this area who activly take part in this forum. So to sum that up, Thank you everyone for your responses!
Now back to the subject at hand.
I went down to Fort Collins the other day to meet up with my cousin and fish the Poudre through town. I apologize to all of my 970 neighbors for sunday because apparently I brought with me the Wyoming cold & wind. (I thought that stuff stayed at bay on the Wyo border.)
I once again didn't see any fish rising all day. I have some 20+ BWO that I really do enjoy throwing, but due to the wind on the surface of the water and the fact that I didnt' see any surface action...I decided to fish Wooly Buggers for the majority of the day. BH Black WB and BH Thin Mints.
And after about 4 hours and 6 total fish we headed in to warm up our fingers. My cousin also lives really close to a lake in town. Not wanting to waste any daylight we headed out to chuck a few big ugly flies at some pike.... (I had no idea as to what I was doing) but as my cousin turns to me and begins to discuss our amazing ability to catch the wind and cold; his line goes tight and
I was fishing the Green below Fontenelle the other day and there was an incredible BWO hatch coming off with also a great midge hatch. Lots of little fish coming to the surface on a pretty regular basis with a few big ones thrown in to keep your interest. I landed 8 but they were all pretty small 6-8 inch range except for one that was 13-14 inch.
I am not from Colorado so I am not up to date on my bodies of water... could you lead me in the right direction as far as where i can look these places up on a map?
Once again, thank you Everyone for your input!!!
