Date:  Father's Day, June 17, 2007
Private water on the
South Platte River
1/2 day trip in the afternoon
Number of Anglers:  2
Guide:  Tad Howard
Very nice; sunny, with temps in the 70's.
River Condition:
Water temps in mid 40's by mid day.  Water is running about
300 cfs and there is moderate visibility.
Mike and his son Jack did a great job of finding and landing
some beautiful trout this Fathers' Day.

We started fishing in early afternoon and on literally the 2nd
cast ,Mike hooked up a nice 16-inch trout.  That set the tone
for the afternoon.  Jack was quick to follow with a solid hook-up
of his own, and both father and son quickly had several nice
trout in the net.  We worked over the holding water with care
and the trout just kept cooperating.

It was a fun day for everyone and a great way to spend a
Sunday afternoon.

With the waters stabilizing after a large snowpack year, the
fishing is heating up and should get even better as stream
flows continue to come down.  Give us a call for the latest
conditions and availability at 303-325-5515.

Jack and I had a great time yesterday – thanks much!

I attached a couple of photos – I am sure Jack will remember
the day the rest of his life – so will I.
