Beautiful fall day. Sunny with light winds.  Some mixed clouds in the
afternoon.  Temps warming to the 60's.
Lake Condition:
Water temps in the high 40's.
Good visibility
These pictures speak for themselves.  This was the kind of day fly
fishermen dream about, with beautiful scenery, good weather, lots of
big trout eating dry flies, and great company. The big brook trout
are on the move in this lake. They are starting to school up and get
ready to spawn in the next couple weeks.  The dry fly fishing was
very good with fish eating very aggressively before winter.

On this day we landed brook trout, cutthroat trout, rainbow trout,
and cut-bow trout. There are still hoppers around and it is always
lots of fun to fish big dry flies. Danny did a great job with these
aggressive fish and we quickly lost count of how many were caught.

The fall fishing is in full swing, and most of the streams and rivers
are fishing very well, but a few are getting a bit low.  There are lots
of BWO's around and the fish seem to be very aggressive with the
changing season.  The brown trout have their fall colors and are
getting very active.  We have caught some beautiful trout on our
guide trips in the last few days.

If you are looking to get out one more time before winter, this is a
great time of year to fly fish in Colorado.

"I have been fly fishing my whole life and this day was one of my very
best.  I have done numerous trips with Tad and like all the previous,
this one led to me coming away good stories, big fish, new lessons
learned, and an exciting day of fishing with a guide that also doubles
as a friend.  Any trip booked with Colorado Trout Hunters is a good
investment and a guaranteed good time."
