Overall a good day, albeit with a very cold morning (temp on car said 26 degrees when I arrived). Three of the keepers will be dinner tonight.



I was there yesterday myself. Started at the sand bar area of Hugh's Crossing then went to the walk-in area for a few hours then back to the sand bar before dark. I had a great day with some good sized fish and most all hard fighters.

It's nearing that time of year again!! Has anyone noticed that Scott's website is down? Normally it is directly where I go to get info on the upcoming trout season (not that anything really changes year to year).
My son and I were talking yesterday about how this year, we're finally going to abandon the shoulder to shoulder "fishing" within 150 yards of Hughes crossing and head up to the area just N of Hwy 7. It's gorgeous up there and hopefully less crowded.
We had the fortunate opportunity to fish the Frying Pan river this summer in CO, so we got our fix on fish not too long ago. Anyway, we'll be up there just like every year.

Scotty retired and sold the store. Not sure if they will still have the website

Barry Schrader has long been the authority on fly fishing at the blue river. He blogged about it for many years.
I copied Barry's email address from his blog. fishingcowboyblue@yahoo.com

I'm sure he would be happy to answer anyone's questions about the derby.
