Spring Fly Fishing!
The weather was cold but the trout didn't seem to care.  On this trip,
a father and his two sons braved some chilly weather to get into
some red hot spring fly fishing.

Day one was very cold in the morning.  There was some ice in the
river when they started, but after some instruction on nymph fishing
they were soon hooking and catching lots of rainbow trout.  The
rainbows are in big groups or pods right now, establishing
dominance before they go into the spring spawn.  Nymph fishing was
productive on both days, with fish taking small attractor flies as well
as small nymphs.

Fishing is best mid-day as the water warms.  The water temps are
raising 3-5 degrees during the day, prompting some very good
mid-day feeding activity.

Colorado Trout Hunters guided fly fishing adventures are a great
way to enjoy the outdoors, have fun with family and friends, and
learn about Colorado fly fishing.  We look forward to fishing with you
this season.

Testimonial:
Thanks again for an awesome trip.  My dad can't stop saying how
much fun he had and how many fish we caught.  I got some great
pictures.  We are already in the planning stage for next year!
