I recently returned from a trip to Colorado to fish the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork. It was such a wonderful trip that it has me in the planning mode for future trips. I have been reading a lot of posts about folks trip. I have also been reading a lot of different books and and magazine articles and listening to a lot of podcasts. In almost all of the podcasts they do a walk thru of all the hatches and times of year, etc... It got me thinking about all of the different rivers and the times of year I would want to hit them for the best hatches and fishing.

If you could plan a year of fishing with at least one trip a month, where would you go each month and why? For example, I hit the Green Drake hatch on the Frying Pan at the end of July and I cannot think of a better place to be in July if you can hit that hatch. What about the Gunnison in June for the Salmonfly hatch? Where would you go?
