That is my favorite kind of creek! be careful not to tell anyone about it by name. By the way, you don't have to photo those fish to have me believe you I'll take your word.

Dang Milt, nice little brownies in that creek! I just watched all your vimeo vids, the "untitled" from 1 week ago, that looked like really nice fish on the nymph. What was it?

Thanks D! That was a rainbow that hit that nymph, quite the strike for a ten inch fish. I also had one move downstream about ten feet and smash a Micro May right in front of me as I lifted it toward the surface, but did not have the camera running. I wanna trade places with Branjg for a day! milt.

That fish looked a lot bigger when it rolled in front of your camera the last time...but then there was nothing to put in relation to it.

Are you filming yourself while fishing? That must be tricky.

He was just ornery! I have a small blogger HD vidcam with a small GorillaPod and a homemade bite mount that I use for the hands free. Very light and very inexpensive. I shall try to load up some more this afternoon. milt.

branjg, that looks like my kind of fishing. Beautiful place and beautiful fish!

Question for you, my bro is moving to Colorado Springs (army) and I might need to visit him. Any good trout fishing there? PM me if you want.

Bran, I cant decide if you're fishing at a movie set or the scene for a fly fishing photo shoot, but I want to be there!

Mr10004, I wish I could help you but I haven't ever fished in that area. I believe there are many places to fish around there (within an hour or two). I would suggest checking with the local shops or maybe checking with some of the guys on this forum. As of now I think there are 32,000 people evacuated due to the Waldo fire in that area. It is extremely dried out, and needs rain badly!

And yes, I am very fortunate with the areas and streams/rivers I am able to fish, just hoping they will still be running in the late summer.
