Default Fishing Northgate Canyon the next 3 days

Have three days off from work, so I am heading over to check out Northgate Canyon/ Sixmile gap area. I have never been over there, so this will we a learning experience for me. From what I have seen, there are a lot of boulders and pocket water up stream in Northgate, and flatter water down river. Can anybody else that has been there verify this? I love boulder hopping czech style fishing, so I will probably be heading up river to hit the pocket water. Hopefully I will have plenty of pictures to post up on Wednesday night. If anyone else has fished it, chime in and let me know how it was.

I fish there every September , we just go to the boat / raft launch at the top of Northgate canyon. You can walk about a mile or so before you will run in to a tricky if not impassable section leading in to the canyon if the water is still running strong. Have no fear it is a great mile of fishing .

This is my dad up there fishing in a rainstorm. North park anglers are great guys and tons of help

A good high clearance back roads vehicle will get you better access. To me, Northgate Canyon starts at the Routt access, and ends somewhere before Pickeroon, so that over 10 miles to fish.

Use a satellite to find the boulder gardens you are looking for. Lot of flat water in between that even gets pretty skinny later in the year. Flows are still good now though, and a guy that fished the gap last weekend said it was clear.
