Colorado River

Decided to fish some new water to finish off the trip and headed to the upper Colorado River.  I started at the Colorado River Trailhead in R.M.N.P. and fished my way upstream over the next seven hours.  I start the day with an Amy's Ant but quickly switch to something smaller.  I land on a caddis and never take it off.  I cast to every bit of water that might hold a fish and end up catching a fish in three of four holes and multiple fish out of deeper pockets.  By the time I have finished I have caught 100 fish for only the second time in my life.  I walk straight back to the trail which follows the creek and head back to the car.  Much to my surprise I am only fifteen minutes walk on the trail from where I started(took seven hours to fish same stretch).  I get back to the car only to see a couple of elk and deer hanging around to finish off a great day in style.

  1. Simply stunning! Beautiful country, beautiful waters and brilliant camera work. I certainly can see why it would take (7) hours to take in the wonder of where you were and what you were experiencing.

  2. Been up there many times and had close to the 100 fish days you are talking about.Great pictures also
