East Inlet Creek

Even though it was the fourth of July I decided to try some fishing.  I picked East Inlet creek hoping to miss the crowds of the big rivers.  The trail was packed but nobody was fishing when I got to the first meadow.  I work my way between the lower and upper meadows over the coarse of the day, catching too many fish to count.  That being said, I probably had twice as many snap at it but not get hooked.  I finish the day in the upper meadow with a fish on my last cast before heading back to the car.  Pretty good forth!

  1. Beautiful scenery and photos!

    The family wants to drive Trail Ridge Road tomorrow, our last day in Estes. I thought we'd stop at the Colorado River Trail Head for lunch, and I'd fish a bit. Have you fished the Colorado recently? I'm curious if the water near the trail will be similar to East Inlet. Thanks.

    1. Sorry for the late response, but I have not fished the Colorado lately anyway.

    2. Not late at all. We're driving to the west side of the park this morning. Thanks.
