    Default Wet Wading in Colorado yet

    Anyone wet wading yet ? Typically after 4th of July the waders get put away until October. With the lack of runoff just wondering if anyone has wet waded the Big T, Poudre or St Vrain yet ?

    Not Colorado, but Oregon river W/W usually kicks off in late June-early July.

    Well thanks for the 411 guys. I am going to give it a go today, leaving the waders in the truck

    Supposed to be 90 degrees so shouldnt be to bad. I just hate hiking two miles to freeze in the river. I dont mean cold either, cold I can handle. It is that icy 35-40 degree water that I dont wanna stand in for 4 hours

    I've been wet wading here since about april (got sick of the waders over the winter).
    Also wet waded on the blue this afternoon after sweating to death in my waders this morning (Although they were frozen when I started... water temp was ~50).
    I guess it depends how wet you want to get, and how much cold water you can handle. I was wading out to rocks and then standing on them to stay warmer.

    Yes. U-Sac and U-Mac first weekend of the month. Warm weather+cold river=happy camper. That's CA for you though.
