Fishing Highlights:

Great day with John and Todd! Today was a short day on the water, but it was more about showing Todd a good time. Being Todd's first day ever out fly fishing, we went out and worked on the basics of how to cast, detect a strike and read the water. Todd had a great day! Catching some nice fish on nymphs and dry flies! Some beautiful fall weather up here at Boulder River Ranch right now. Water is perfect, the trees are changing colors and the fish are willing to eat! Now is the time to get out before it gets to cold! Thanks for the great day guys!

Do yourself a favor and get to Colorado‚Äôs mountains! The leaves are changing, the elk are bugling, and big brown trout are on the move!  The fishing is great.  Overcast skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
