Two Weekends Two Canyons

29 May 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

The last two weekends I have fished the same river but in two different canyons. The first was Eleven Mile Canyon. I had never fished that section of the South Platte before, but wanted to give it a whirl because I had heard the fishing…

Deckers

27 Apr 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

I have been wanting to hit up the Deckers area of the South Platte River during the week to avoid the masses. And Thursday my buddy Jason and I did just that. We both skipped out on work to fish and what a great spring-like…

Trout Brunch

02 Apr 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Saturday morning I went up to Bear Creek and started fishing around 9. For the first two and half hours nothing. No catches, no bites, nothing. At about 10:30ish I make my way towards part of the creek that is near the road and I…

Visiting New Mexico

27 Mar 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Over the weekend we went south to visit my dad in the Land of Enchantment. I have never been fishing down there and wanted to give it a go. My dad lives in Santa Fe and the closest rivers to fly fish are the Pecos…

Pre-Spring Fly Fishing

08 Mar 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

On Sunday we went out to the only mountain river I have been to this winter, the South Platte in Cheesman Canyon. The good news is that I was able to use my new rod and reel and try out some streamers I tied up….

Ain’t no fun if the homies don’t catch none

29 Jan 2013, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

I went out to the South Platte in Cheesman Canyon with my buddies Esteban and Jason over the weekend. We chose Cheesman because it’s one of the few places to fish during the winter here in Colorado. It was an abnormally warm January day. The…

The Fourth Time’s the Charm

04 Nov 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

There are a few sayings that go along with my fly fishing outing to the South Platte in Cheesman Canyon on Saturday. “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” “persistence pays off” and “the third time’s the charm.” It was actually my fourth…

October Pond Fly Fishing

14 Oct 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

I definitely prefer the summer over the other three seasons. The days are longer, the temperature is warmer and it just feels like there are more days to fly fish. That being said, no matter the season, any day with fly fishing in it is…

Jefferson Lake Bows

21 Sep 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin', Videos

A couple of weekends ago I went up to beautiful Jefferson Lake. The lake is nestled between a few mountains at about 10,000 feet above sea level. I went with my buddy Esteban and we decided to use our belly boats. Good idea because the…

Clear Creek Browns

06 Sep 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin', Videos

If you like a lot of action and don’t care about size, (mind out of the gutter as I am talking about fly fishing) then Clear Creek this time of the year is the place for you. I went up for the morning a couple…

Monarch Park Camping

17 Aug 2012, Posted by The Fly Trout in Gone Fishin'

Two weekends ago we packed up and met my up with my dad again for another camping trip. This time we went up near Salida to Monarch Park Campground. This beautiful campground was near the top of Monarch Pass and had an elevation of over…
