Now onto some fishing reports.
Fathers day I was able to take out and hit Cheesman Canyon for a few hours in the morning. Flows where good at about 195cfs. Fishing was good but not great. I was totally surprised by how empty the canyon was for a weekend. What I also realized was the canyons is one of those place that you need to fish on a regular bases to have confidence. The day started off with a 3 fly nymph rig, took a little to pick up the first fish a feisty rainbow. This is still on of the most scenic places I know.
The Wednesday before fathers day me and Rick took off to south park for a little still water action at Antero. The fishing was some what slow. I was able to test out my new frame less pontoon boat from Creek company. Did get a killer picture a damsel nymph, I was surprised on how bright green the color was. The cali hatch was pretty slow, saw a few dries.
My new toy. This thing is awesome
The last report was from about 3 weeks ago. Kelly and I took of to the Arkansas river at Hayden meadows. It was a beautiful day for fishing, we had the river to our shelves. Arrived at the river around 8:30am and geared up. The morning started off with a bang and by early afternoon it was fishing real slow. A green caddis larva seemed to be the ticket. Did switch over to a dry dropper, the dropper seemed to be the ticket. Hardly saw any top water action.
