We thought since we had such a great time recently on a few trips to keep the theme going. Each weekend we've been able to get out it's been super nice. Nice weather usually = not good fishing but better yet perfect weather is better suited to chill riverside and take a nap. We did it all, fish and take a few siestas.
This piggy came after much work. After far too many break offs I had to get serious and land a decent trout. That came one morning after getting streamside at 6:30am, man what a sweet morning that was. A few decent rainbows and it was time to do wat I came for...chase big browns. One 10lb brown gave in to a secret midge pattern only to run away and jump kindly as to say "not today mate"! Boy was that a heartbreaker. This guy above fell to a green midge pupa and ran far away as well before netting. Size on him was nice, the length of my net was 23" so you decide?
Fall in the Rockies, is there a more prettier site around than this? I could do this every weekend, hey I forgot...I do get to do this every weekend.
Night time action for browns is so hard to beat for me. Chasing browns on either streamers, caddis, midges or shrimp all proce effective. I love the midnight air, few crowds and knowing any given momemt orca could show up at anytime. This time no but maybe next time.
More Colorado Fall colors to inspire me to grab that camera for a few shots down South. Whether it was a day hike, fishing, biking, or a photography getaway it doesn't really matter. If only we had Fall 3 months a year!
