Colorado fly fishing trip report from the Dream Stream in Colorado March 20, 2007

Date: March 20, 2007

Location: Dream Stream for 1/2 day in morning; private water 1/2 day afternoon. Call 303-325-5515 for availability and bookings.

Number of Anglers: 2

Guide: Tad Howard

Weather: Very nice; sunny, with temps in the 60’s.

River Condition: Water temps in upper 30’s, into lower 40’s by mid day.  Water is running about 60 cfs and there is good visibility.

Fishing was excellent.  Anglers Mark Richins and Blair Tuttle spent the morning in South Park, Colorado, on the Dream Stream chasing big trout.  Several very nice fish were landed and a few got away.  Small flies were the order of the day; #18-20 midge patterns were best.

The river was very crowded.  If you want solitude, this is not the place, but the fish were looking healthy and put up some great fights.

When the wind picked up we changed gears and fished a private area of the South Platte.  Blair and Mark tag-teamed the first grand slam of the season landing 5 species of trout.  The brown trout, rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, cut-bow trout, and brook trout all in the same day!!

With the nice weather the fishing is getting better and better.  Give us a call and we would be happy to set you up with a guide to enjoy the Colorado outdoors and chase some trout.
