The river is still pretty good sized up there, more pocket water than lower down towards the campground, but still plenty big enough to fish. The left fork runs into it above the campsite and it is...

I did a trip there probably five years ago coming from the top and stayed at 61 and 62 for a night. The fishing was good, but surprisingly only a few brookies up at 61 and the rest were rainbows. It...

It's about 5 miles, so the guesses of 2 hours are generally right depending on how fast you walk. It's a pretty easy hike most of the way so you could definitely do it in 2.

No I've never really made it over that way. Since we moved out here, we haven't ventured much further west than Pisgah, but we actually may head out that way today. There's definitely lots of water...

Pisgah Blueline 8-22

Managed to sneak out a little early at work today so I headed into Pisgah to hit up a blue line that I haven't been to in some time, probably 6 years or so. Worked out great since this is the hottest...

A little late in this report as it was about a month ago, but oh well. My wife and I finally made it out west after years of trying, so we hit up Estes Park and the eastern side of the RMNP. This was...

We were out there a little less than a month ago and had a couple good days. One day we parked at the Wild...

Jim is right just be prepared for some of the most rugged areas in the park. Don't go alone and make sure and take your time and be careful, you would hate to break an ankle back there. (By the way,...

Matt i thought you were gonna call me next time you went? Hope things are going well and still need to meet up and go fishing again. We have unfinished business on a certain stream in that area.

I would say the reason is to ensure that there is no chance the rainbows will start taking back over and diminish the brook trout population. While i would agree that a few rainbows probably wouldn't...

I would stick to terrestrials myself as most of the major hatches will be over by that point. The fish probably won't be too picky, however, so an old faithful attractor pattern will most likely work...
