Ivory Arrow welcome. I haven't seen this post before (I'm just too ignorant) but try someday to come down to the Spanish Peaks area and fish North Lake. Rainbow, Brown, Brookie and Tiger trout. Good lake for fly fishing.
Thanks Man i will give that a try this fall when the Browns start spawning. That area should be fun! I wanted to go to Grape Creek this year but just too low and warm so i will wait until next year, hopefully thinsg will be better. I havent been fishing the Ark this summer other than one trip up to Hayden Meadows in July. Water temps just too high. Been spending as much time in the high country and camping with the family. Alpine Lakes, Small streams, and Cheesman canyon (after flows were bumped) is where i have been spending time. I just got back from a trip to the North Platte River. That was a good time but that river was tough to figure out for me. I caught fish but it was tougher than i thought. And oh man you talk about some STRONG fish. Never felt fish that strong before. First time i had bent hooks, this trip i lost two hogs on two bent hooks. Not cool but just shows how strong these guys were.Next time try the black bridge just a few 100 yards west from 9th St. bridge. There's a big hole there. Also around Centenial Park has some good spots. I'm planning on getting back there this summer. "The Wall" near Raynolds Bridge holds big fish, that's for sure, but they are not easy. Grape Creek does well most of the time, if water levels are good.
