Quote(s) of the Day: "They are crushing it when the sun comes out."

Fishing Highlights:

It has been an incredible fall in Colorado. The temperature has been perfect and the fish have been eating well. We had some great fishing this afternoon. It was very interesting how the eats were on the slow side, but when the sun popped out, they would absolutely crush. Very fun to to ride the anticipation of the sun peeking out from the passing clouds.

The water has come down and things are flowing low and clear. Look for another good fall fishing season along Colorado‚Äôs Front Range. The fish have seen a lot of pressure this season and are quickly spooked. Walk softly and use your eyes to avoid spooking fish, keep a low profile and never sky line yourself. The sight fishing has been great.  The fishing is fantastic.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
