Quote(s) of the Day: I wish I could have landed those two Browns.
It was a beautiful April day in Colorado today. The fishing was on right when Dave wet a line. Within the first five casts Dave hooked into a nice 14" brown but quickly rid the hook. Most of the morning we had consistent hookups and they were exciting takes. Almost every eat that we had they would take the rig and start to run up stream which made for an exciting day. The trick was to switch up weight and hit different levels of the water column. Another great day on the river.

Partly Cloudy skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off. Spring is here and it’s time to grab the rod and head for the mountains and foothills!   As the weather warms the water is rising as well. Runoff is around the corner so hit your local streams around Denver/Boulder while you can!   Make sure your nymph rig is deep enough, find the bottom of the river and fish up.   The fishing is great.
