    Default 1st Float down the Blue...

    Flows were finally bumped on the Blue below Green Mountain Res.

    And once the word got out...it was a busy weekend on the Blue!

    We got on the water early and were surprised to see that we weren't the only ones with the idea of starting early! 2 cars were already at the take out, and when we finished for the day, 7 more cars were in the lot.

    Lots of fish were brought to the net, with quite a few big boys to boot!

    If you've never had a chance to float the Blue, you need to add it to your bucket list. Here, you have a legitimate chance to hook into a 30 inch rainbow...

    That looks like a fishing trip dreams are made of and my friend Bill in Colorado fished it about two weeks ago and said it was fishing great.

    Could one safely float the Blue below GM on a 8 foot pontoon? Or is an actual drift boat necessary...? I saw it at 800cfs last year, it looked deadly for smaller craft but the drift boats looked right at home.

    I have waded the edges below the put in twice, great stretch of river down there. Definitely on my list to float the whole length (hopefully this summer).

    You wouldn't be able to get a drift boat down the put in! And I wouldn't want to carry it at the take out! Them boats are heavy! Use a raft! Much easier to carry down the put in and they bounce off rocks instead of being crunched like a drift boat.

    There's also no way you could run a pontoon by yourself down there. There's nowhere to pull over and fish. You'd be spending all your time rowing trying to avoid hitting things...Jones Ranch has a reputation for having the sheriff waiting at the take out for you ready to arrest you for trespassing...

    Find a friend with a raft or a 2/3 person pontoon. Makes the trip much better!!!

    Also...if you know of anybody that has access at Blue Valley Acres...it cuts your float time down and it's an easier put in...I'm sure that someone can be bribed to give you access...hint hint...wink wink.

    Nice brownie! Not a lot of them in the river so kudos for catching one! I know that spot well! Here's some that I've caught in the same area...





    What's even more fun is when people on the bridge are watching you fish and they bust out the cameras when you land a big one!

    The pictures at the start of this thread are from the Blue below Green Mountain which is about 30 miles north of Silverthorne.
