Ft. Walton

Doc,

Have you had a chance to fish there yet? I am heading that way in a couple of weeks, and I would like any advice I a get on areas to fish or guide recommendations.

Thanks!

Bait

What color power bait? Should I use pink to match the worm. I always like to keep up with current fashion trends with my bait. I hate catching trout out of style. I think pink is going to be hot...

Shops

Do you think all the local shops near YNP sell only lead free flies? Should I tie the standard nymphs - prince, hare's ear, pheasant tails. I have fished in the park several times, but I bought the...

Lead wire

Hey Flyman,

Good to hear from you. I have fished in places where lead split shot was prohibited, but I was not aware that Yellowstone did not allow lead wire. I am going there next summer so...

Amen

I have made it a habit of visiting fly shops when I travel even if I am not on a fishing trip. I have visited shops in at least twenty states. LRO is by far the best I have been in. There simply...

I only wish

Flyman,

Great to hear from you. I truly wish all I had to do was fish. My fishing has been very limited this year. I am heading to the mountains this afternoon though and to Montana on the...

Unhappy Durango

Stay away from Durango. The EPA released the toxic mine waste into a tributary of the Animas river. Yes that is correct - the EPA. It was an accident of course, and I am sure they will be held to the...

Train

We took the train ride from Durango to Silverton. It is a beautiful ride and stream. I did not fish there though. I am sure it would be good.

I have not fished the Gunnison area, but I really...

Small Stream

Cheeooo,

If you are looking for streams similar to the SMNP streams, I would recommend Rio Santa Barbara and Columbine Creek. They are both pretty tight in terms of casting, but hold beautiful...

States

Since everyone is listing the states I thought I would list mine. In doing so, I realized it is 18 states rather than 17. I try to go somewhere in the northwest every year. I love Colorado, but my...

Great info

This is great information. I am always interested in lower elevation speck streams. I was interested in the new rod as well. What did you get.

Thanks Guys

I want to thank all of you for the information. I got on some sites this week and the stoneflies are on near Santa Fe. I will give a report when I return, unless my luck is bad that is.;)
