Default Where's Run-Off?

If any of you are familiar with how much snow we have had here in Colorado the last couple of years you know we have had some unusually high muddy run-offs given all the low water years.

Well this year its just the opposite...we don't have much snow pack to speak of and so I figured I would bypass the still water and take the kids to a good nearby stream that would normally be too high to cross let alone be able to fish.

The fishing wasn't gang busters but was good enough! The kids had a ball and the weather was perfect.

These creek fish were not really eager to come to the surface so I set them up with a good bobber and nymph rig that seemed to do the trick...needless to say we had trout for dinner and the boys were on cloud 9. (me too)

great looking area and a nice little stream to take the lads. Looks like Gunnison area? Maybe near Currecanti? No need to verify, I just like to guess from the pics.
Those boys are gonna be pros!

My sons are 36 and 31. We enjoy fishing together, but life and distance are our enemies these days. Enjoy your sons while you can... as often as you can...
