    Default High Country Beaver Ponds

    Had just Will this weekend so figured we better hit some high country action. The Grand Mesa was crawling with campers but we did manage to find a good spot, but had to go deep to get it. Glad we did.

    Fished yesterday evening and the lightning round was spectacular. Fish were wary but catchable. As you can see from one of the pics the fish were rising like crazy.

    Fished again this morning with the same results, very good fishing for fish to about 12". Nothing huge but good fighters and a terrific environment to teach the younguns. All dry flies. Kids reactions to the strike on the surface is always an amazing scene. Freak out!

    Here are some pics, it was very wet up there.

    That's some nice backcountry action!!! Thanks for posting the pics, too. That's cool you found some of those some small streams and ponds loaded with cutts. I usually only seem to stumble across brookies on those small unnamed waters in the Southern Rockies.
