    Default Pictures From Colorado

    I'm not going to include a full report but those will gradually be available over on my blog. The following are simply some pictures of fish I caught and also some scenery while in Colorado. Hope you enjoy...

    First, some scenery...

    Looking towards the mountains from near Canon City, CO...


    Near Independence Pass


    Far upper Roaring Fork...


    Camping in Elevenmile Canyon, South Platte River...


    Night sky over the Taylor River


    Black Canyon of the Gunnison


    Stormclouds threaten over the Arkansas River

    Would you please post a few pics of you holding a dink or maybe a Smoky Mtn Cut?? It's becoming a bit tedious having to look at all these pictures of you holding these big fish .

    Nice pics! Nice fish!

    Thanks

    Gerry

    PS Still thinking of hitting the Caney on Sunday?

    Gerry, probably won't make the Caney this Sunday. Probably either next week or the following though...

    Brett's shift rotated earlier than he thought it would, so we might be able to do the trip we talked about next Sunday in stead of or in addition to the one in October... What do you think?

    Looks like some quality fish you were able to hook into. How many of those did you catch at night? Good stuff.

    The scenics are amazing...good for the soul.

    BTW...Did you guys camp down in the canyon on the Gunnison?

    We didn't catch tons of fish at night although I hooked some good fish very very near to dark... While fishin the Gunnison, we camped at East Portal which is in the Black Canyon. It is a great little campground right on the river. It makes life easy and relaxed. Fish a little, lounge around camp, tie some flies, fish a little more, and never have to get in your car and drive anywhere... Sometime I would like to backpack into the Black Canyon. I've done day hikes in from the top and while the hike is killer, the fishing is definitely worth the agony. At East Portal, it is mainly fishing midges and scuds but farther down the canyon, you can get into lots of big dumb fish on larger flies...they just aren't picky...


    Gerry, I would definitely be in for any type of trip if you guys can make it...just let me know. Shoot me an email and we can discuss specifics or give me a call some evening this week... I've got some midge patterns that were perfected in Colorado that I have yet to try on the Caney fish so I'll definitely be trying to fish it sometime soon...

    Those are great photos and some nice fish as well. I have yet to venture to Colorado to fish but that will be a trip that comes soon I hope. Do you remember what the exposure was on your nightshot ? That's an interesting photo.
