March 30, 2006 Colorado Trout Hunters Trip Report

Date: March 30th 2006

Location: North Fork of South Platte private fly fishing ranch.  Call 303-325-5515 for availability and bookings.

Number of Anglers: 2

Guide: Tad Howard

Weather: Very nice sunny all day.  Temp’s in the 60’s no wind.  Very good day to be out!

River Condition: Water temps in upper 30’s into lower 40’s mid day.  Low and clear water conditions 46 cfs.

Spring Fly Fishing!! As you can see by the pictures fishing is red hot!!!  The warmer weather has raised the water temp’s and the fish are on the feed.  A stealthy approach is still necessary but the first cast into almost every good pool and run produced a solid strike.

Some fish spawning in the afternoon.  We had to take care when navigating the river not to disturb the spawning beds and the fish that
were actively spawning.  Plenty of fish that were not spawning were very willing to aggressively chase our flies.

A special thanks to Joe and Randy (a couple great guys) for making the day one to remember.

24.5 inch Cut-bow BIG FISH of the day!

Great looking 20 inch wild brown

Nice brook trout.

Great way to end the day.
