Re: Entomology and the Angler - Free Seminar by 'The Bug Guy' - Metro Denver Aug. 27

Thanks for looking! We're expecting a good turnout.

You're probably wondering why is this at a library and not a flyshop? Well, things are changing, especially with the Adams County Rangeview...

Re: North Plate worth fishing later in summer?

Interesting about Bennett Peak. The guys at Brush Creek must not be enjoying that either just down around the bend.

Another thing to consider is the Encampment adds some volume down from the...

Re: North Plate worth fishing later in summer?

I can attest that the NPR has had it's share of ups and downs in terms of water and temps in the past, but we had a decent snowpack here in Colorado this winter, especially in the northern half of...

Re: Fishing etiquette! Do people have any?

Perhaps the worst form of bad etiquette is when guides with clients in tow disrespect other anglers. Last year, I was on the Dream Stream in Colorado, minding my own business, enjoying some dry fly...

Re: Water Conditions in Colorado?

Being on the West Slope, its not a long drive to the Roaring Fork Valley, of the Lower Colorado, which holds some record trout. Or, maybe the San Miguel, Rio Grande, or Uncompaghre? All of these...

Re: Strange Results on the Upper Colorado River

Nice. Did better than I did. Sunday sucked again. Spent 3+ hours working the runs down from Hot Sulphur, only to come up with a handful of fingerlings. One decent sized brown came to the net. I...

Re: Took a day off to fish

Wow, that tiger trout pattern is so cool. That looks like the St. Mary's Lake Trail. You don't have to disclose that, of course :D

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Colorado River.

Head downstream thru Hot Sulphur Springs, thru Byers Canyon, and at the bridge, park and head down to the river. This stretch is great wading, and if the flows are good, has great dry action in the...

Re: Access Inquiry about the South Platte River

Yeah, I could hit up the boys in the shop. Thought I'd ask here too. If it is private we all need to know. Thanks Larry.

Re: Upper North Platte and the Encampment River

If you go to Bennett Peak, you can camp at Corral Creek Campground (free) a mile before Bennett Pk on the left side of BLM 3404. This stretch of water - its a big oxbow bend - is pretty amazing. The...

Re: Winter fishing, could use some help

I've figured out that it can be tough on the Platte in winter, you have to bounce the bugs off the trout's nose for them to react in the sluggish water. mattneeds is right too - deep cuts are where...
