June 9, 2010 Colorado Trout Hunters Colorado Lakes Fly Fishing Update
Date: June 9, 2010
Lake Condition: Clear water conditions
With the mercury rising along with the rivers, June is a great time to spend some time exploring Colorado’s high mountain lakes. We
primarily fish 2 large private ranches that have a variety of exceptional lake fishing opportunities.
These photos are from a series of trips from Memorial Day weekend to present. The lakes are in prime condition and all the trips to the
high lakes have been very productive and tons of fun. Now is the best time to take advantage of lake fishing, as it should be great for the next few weeks!
We have successfully hooked many fish using a variety of techniques, including some nice fish on DRY FLIES! Many anglers only think of streams as an ideal locale for fly fishing, but lakes offer a fun diversion and anglers can hone a whole different set of skills!
Even with high waters reported around the state, we still have some exceptional river – stream fishing and several areas that currently
have ideal stream flows for trout fishing. The fish in these areas have been cooperative. Look for the rivers to remain high for a few days,
especially when the weather temperature is up. Flows should be decreasing to normal levels by late June as the snow pack recedes.
