Great to see that you're having a good time out there. My youngest and I went out there about a month ago. If I might make a suggestion, if you want to get into some Greenbacks without a ton of hiking, look to the Leadville area, specifically the end of Turquoise Lake. The Lake Fork of the Arkansas is Greenback-only above a barrier falls a short distance up the Timberline Lake trail. In the stream it's catch and release; however, if you hike all the way up to Timberline Lake (about 3 miles - it isn't a bad hike), the limit is two. We went up there, and it was my first experience with stillwater fly fishing. My youngest took a 12 inch cutt up there.
