Fishing Highlights:

What an awesome day with Josh and his dad John, this is Josh's third trip together and each time we go out there is always something to talk about!! Today Josh brought his dad up from Austin, Texas to try his hand at some fly fishing. We started off with the basics of a simple roll cast and how to manage his line during a drift then we were off to the races! John led the way with 10 fish to the net during our half-day session with Josh landing 7 both were able to get there first fish on a dry fly today and were totally taken back by how aggressive these fish can be over a small Adam's or a tiny terrestrial!

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 fishing is great.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Crystal Clear.
