I had a little free time today, so i decided to do some fishing. I went to Lyons Park here in Fort Collins, it was packed at least ten fisherman visible from the road. That wasn't happening so I decided to go up river to Watson Lake, the river was dry there. Looked like some construction by the hatchery or something. With no other options I made my way up the canyon to look for open water, the lower canyon still had a lot of ice. Just when I was about to give up I saw the turn off for the North Fork. It was my last hope, I thought it would be iced over for sure.It wasn't though, the warm water from Seaman Reservoir must have melted it all off, and there was only one other car in the parking lot! Five cast in I caught this bug eyed little rainbow it was my only action of the day, but it beats fighting the crouds in town.
