This short film is our first attempt to create a fishin' movie with a borrowed Go Pro. The quality is poor, the music is terrible, but this fishing is pretty good so check it out.

All the nearby rivers are still swollen from all the flooding last week, so in order to make a relatively short fishing trip the only real option right now is Redfeather lakes. The fishing turned out to be really great, caught about 15 cutbows all in the 14-18 inch range. They were crushing caddis any size any color. Guess I'll be heading back up there soon.

We normally head up the canyon to catch fish, but with high flows starting already, we decided to go east instead of west. Surprisingly, we ran into more than a few good sized trout on the plains. All the fish caught were browns from 12'' to over 20''. The fish were taking flies in deep holes. I did the best with a size 16 tungsten black zebra midge, Good Times.

After waiting and waiting for the flows to increase and the ice to melt off the rivers. I decided I needed to do something with my life, so I tried a little ice fishing.
I caught quite a few trout this one was the biggest, check out the wounds on this fish. As far as I know there are no pike in this lake so maybe it was attacked by a walleye or a bird. Ice fishing was entertaining, but not a substitute for fly fishing. So I decided to try the one place in town where the river wasn't iced over, below the water sanitation plant. They told me that the fishing would be crappy, but ironically I was able to fool this brown trout with a size 20 grey RS2. It was the only fish I saw all day and after an epic battle that involved my line being tangled in a log jam I managed to wrangle this winter trout.

Red Feather was amazing yesterday, I had my best day of the year. My friend and I caught fish constantly for hours and hours, we had at least six doubles, it was crazy out there. We where fishing dry droppers in the high winds and the average fish was around fifteen inches. I caught four species cutbows, rainbows, browns and even one brook trout mostly on this top secret dropper my friend has been tying.
A couple shots of the largest fish of the day.
I was surprised to see a brookie come out of this lake, never seen one in it before.

I caught my first couple grayling at Joe Wright this past summer and forgot to post pictures. Looking through my photos I noticed that you can only see the bright indigo and pink colors when they are under the water, I wonder why that is. Anyways they were hanging out in the inlet rising and I was able to get a few on a parachute caddis.
Out of the water no blue no pink?
In the water bright pink bright blue?

Fly Fishing Northern Colorado in the month of August is my favorite. The fish are eager to take large dry flies in every part of the river. I find casting caddis or hoppers close to the bank where the current is slowed by rocks, logs or other obstacles can lead to explosive takes all day long. I've had few great days out on the river lately and wanted to share some photos and tips.
