Quote(s) of the Day: I like to hunt them so this is so cool that we can see them.

Fishing Highlights:

Katie and her dad John came up to join us today and wanted to learn more about fly fishing. We started out the day working on casting and hook sets. John was the first to hook a nice little rainbow on a nymph rig. Katie came roaring back with a nice rainbow of her own. We continued to hook fish on nymphs most of the morning. John found a nice little hiding spot for some fish and hooked and landed a nice 17" rainbow and a couple of smaller bows. Katie came alive in the afternoon with several fish to the net and landed her best rainbow of the day right before the rain came in and shut the fishing down. Overall, the day was good and we had lots of firsts and a ton of laughs.

The shallow riffles at Boulder River Ranch are bug factories this season! The late morning and early afternoon have been producing some outstanding dry fly fishing. This is your best shot at a World- Class trout fishing experience close to Denver.  The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
