Default Roaring Fork

Fished the tail end of Roaring Fork this morning, and hooked a very small
rainbow. My husband also caught a small rainbow on a tan elk hair. Temperature was 59 degrees and pleasant for July.

We were there 2 weeks ago. Beautiful water! I caught a few small bows there also.

You are right about the water at Roaring Fork. I was remiss in not
mentioning the beauty of that stream. I was mesmerized by the shafts
of sunlight dancing on the water. The rocks looked as if they were placed by unseen hands to enhance the little waterfalls and pools.

I took my Wife and Daughter along Roaring fork and staged some portrait shots on the rocks in the afternoon with that sunlight filtering through and they just turned out gorgeous.

I always enjoy the setting, it makes me feel like I am fishing there a 100 years ago

If you fish from the last pull off up to the first bridge you will never see another soul and it is like Gatlinburg is a thousand miles away....but take somebody with you because if you get hurt it will seem like help is a thousand miles away....fish it and soak in the solitude.
