Default Re: Colorado Fishing Trip

You will be in one of my favorite areas of the country. I'll probably be somewhere in SW CO again next summer. The fishing can be good around there but I haven't been at the time of year you are talking about. It will probably just be spring at best in the mountains which could limit some of your options up high. If it warms up early and the snow starts melting, that could blow most of the rivers out. Don't overlook stillwaters either...I haven't fished many in that area but spring is one of the better times to hit high country lakes for the lunkers. If you do a guided trip on the San Juan (assuming you mean the lower SJ), make sure your guide knows you want to target big browns. They are more prevalent lower on the river and a lot of guided trips are up near the dam in "rainbow" water. This would be the river to float, especially in the lower section where floating is the only option because of private land. I've heard of some BIG fish down there...

Also, check your PM's...
"Then He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.'" Matthew 4:19
