Colorado River Fall Fishing

Fall Fishing, Brown Trout and Few Crowds...Oh Yeah! Link To Full Story and More Pictures

After having my 1st weekend off from fishing in 2 months, I was going through withdrawals and had to get back out on some quality water again fast. Where did we go you ask? Well why not the Rado! I lived in this area some 12 years ago and each opportunity to get back there is met with a gracious attitude by any person that tags along with me for some hot fishing. I won't say when we hit it but it was within the last month or so and hasn't disappointed.


Nothing like an early morning ride to get the juices flowing and some eager trout awaiting right at 1st light. It's hard to beat being the first person on the water and on my second cup of joe when it's only 6am!


Dave hit a honey hole of his that truely paid off. Than again this is actually called "Daves Hole " believe it or not, he owns it each time we go there! "Troutdawg's hole" didn't fare as well but there were so many other good holes, who needed my hole.


This was another fun spot that rarely sees anyone, most can't find it and the ones that do rarely fish it for long anyways. Boy do I love Fall fishing in Grand county...I may have to pick up residency here again.

That is some great looking water, many bugs out? We are thinking about heading out that way next Summer to fish the Colorado, is there a good month to fish this area?

Actually the Blue wing olives have been out and about this time of year so plenty of action between those, a few eggs and my favorite...chunking streamers!

Generally after run off time is good if you can pin point that time frame. When it get's too deep into Summer the Skitters will get you so be sure to bring some Deet.
