A major winter storm dropped between 14 and 16 inches of snow here in Taylor Canyon last night. This is a view of the Taylor River just down the hill from the house. Winter is here!
We went camping and fishing up north of Steamboat Springs during September and had a blast. Great fall weather and colors, and we caught some beautiful trout. Looking forward to a return trip next year.
We spent a really nice day on a private stretch of the Lake Fork of the Arkansas River last week. It’s a beautiful stream that meanders through a ranch south of Leadville. It was great having this all to ourselves for the day.
A couple of nice fish from our trip to the Upper Rio Grande. Looking forward to going back.
Peri with a pretty wild brown trout on the Arkansas River on 8/6. We fished a private section of the river north of Buena Vista. Fishing was slow, but it was a beautiful stretch of river and a great day to be out there.
Dry fly fishing has been very good on the Taylor River lately. It’s busy out there but you can find some fish, and they are looking up.
The recent rains have really helped pump some much needed water into the rivers and creeks. I got this nice wild brown trout on Tomichi Creek yesterday.
Peri caught this nice brown trout at the headwaters of the Arkansas River near Leadville on our recent camping trip. Looking forward to getting back there.
The summer hatches started early and are moving quickly through the valley. This is pretty typical during a drought like we’re seeing this summer with low water and higher than normal water temps. The hatch is sometimes short and sweet, but the fishing are looking up.
