Quote(s) of the Day: Whoa, Amy!...you are on fire! Are you going to catch all the big fish in the river?

Fishing Highlights:

The whole day was great and the fish were eager to come to the fly throughout the day. We had a lot of success on droppers in the deeper and darker parts of the creek, and although we caught a lot of nice fish, nothing came close to Amy's monster rainbow trout. There's nothing like pulling an 18" fish out of a tiny mountain stream. Great job Hicks fam!

It is summer and the fly fishing opportunities abound near Denver, Colorado! Its dry dropper season on Bear Creek! We have been hooking some unusually large trout at Singing River Ranch. The expert angler can have a lot of fun and enjoyment with a one or two weight fly rod. The willows are thick this year! Bring a shorter rod to make tight and difficult casts. The sight fishing is good. We are regularly hooking fish! We are seeing all sizes of fish, a great indicator that the stream is healthy.  The fishing is fantastic.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
