Spring Fly Fishing With great reservoir levels and a very respectable snowpack, Colorado looks like it is in great shape for the 2009 fly fishing season.  There has been some minor localized runoff with many waterways starting to increase in flow.

The spring fly fishing was very good on Tarryall Creek.   Larry and George started the day out in style, with Larry catching the beautiful
bow (pictured right) on his 3rd cast of the day.  What a way to start the day! Through the entire trip, the trout of Tarryall were cooperative and a good mix of rainbows and browns came to the net. We lost count well before lunch.

George managed to catch some nice fish on dry flies including some very fun strikes from fish we spotted first.  Most of the fish were
caught subsurface on a variety on nymphs.

The fish seemed to have wintered very well on Tarryall Creek with most of the trout caught fighting well and looking healthy.

If you are thinking about a Colorado fly fishing adventure this year please give us a call we are happy to hook you up.

This big rainbow trout was the first fish of the day. Nice job Larry!

This bow was fooled by a large dry fly.

Fly fishing deep runs is a productive spring technique.
