My wife and I were celebrating 20 years of marriage on at the end of May, and so we wanted to do something nice. Our trip began at a resort in Breckenridge with fishing in mind ( my wife fly fishes too). The first couple of days we fished the Blue with minimal success and hit the upper portions of the Middle South Platte near Alma. Lots of Brookies and a few browns and bows. Flies used Purple midges under hoppers or klinkhammers. I also tied on some double dries with Griffiths gnats.
Day 3 Tomahawk runoff was beginning but water was in great shape. same rigs as previously mentioned but lots of fish 20+ day.
When my brother in law joined us mid week I helped teach him a few things at some beaver ponds near Alma. He's fly fished before but with zero results- this time he caught a few fish. now he wants to go to Broken Bow in OK to chase trout again.
Our last and best day in Colorado before heading to New Mexico was on the Dream Stream below Spinney Res. Lots of spooky fish- best to hike a ways where the pressure is lower, so my wife and I headed upstream towards the dam. bows and browns. I took one nice 18" bow on a parachute adams. One day I will return to this place to fish-it's amazing.
If you like fishing dries- you'll find yourself in the prefect place for it. Let me know if you have any other questions or thoughts.
