Default Re: Quick Trip Denver - help please

I love fishing the Blue but the Big Thompson is absolutely on fire right now. I have fished the tail water section over the last 4 weekends and have had double digit days every time I have been out. The main issue with this drive during the week is the mandatory stops due to construction, whether you come through Loveland or Longmont there are at least two and sometime three 30 minute to 1 hour stops which obviously adds a significant amount of time to the drive to and from. I would encourage you to take the Peak To Peak Highway so that you skip this mess.

Once up there, there is a section just below the go-cart track that is great and offer the ability to get into both large fish as well as a number of fish too. Concentrate on emergers in black and brown, JuJuBee (purple), JuJuBeatis (purple), Copper Johns, The One and two Bit Hookers all in size 20. Use 5X leader to 6X tippet, size 6 weight and fish 4-5' deep.
