Comments on Arkansas River A-3 (Gold Camp)
Date Fished: 2014-04-21

The Ark near A-6 was high and muddy so I went to the upper river at noon. It was high at almost 600 cfs but clear to a depth of about 18 inches. I caught eight trout 10 to 16 inches long, 2 rainbows and the rest browns. They took green caddis larvae and golden stone nymphs dead-drifted in 2 to 4 feet of water. A few adult caddis were around but no fish were rising. No hits on streamers. ~ John


Comments on Fraser River C-43
Date Fished: 2014-04-18

Very good day on this picturesque property. As you work your way upstream you have great views of the Winter Park ski area. Two words of warning. At this time of year the snow was still quite deep and wasn't always hard packed so I spent a lot of time digging myself out of the snowbanks. Also, the cobble in the Fraser River are quite large and difficult to wade. I think a walking stick would be a good idea. Mitch from Mo Henry's fly fishing shop suggested we fish with San Juan Worms. I caught over a dozen fish (mostly brown and a handful of rainbow). the pink SJW was the winning ticket. I also caught a handful on a size 22 green and black midge. The fish ran in size from 13 inches to 20 inches. ~ Ed

Date Fished: 2014-04-04

Fished from 10 a.m. to 3 a.m., started out at 12 degrees with filtered sunshine. I think at 3 p.m. it was 28 degrees. I fished by myself, went up the upper half to the road. Figured with temps so low I'd throw some Wooly Buggers. On way up I just focused on the pools and keeping my eyelets from getting crispy. I caught 3 really nice fat rainbows about 15 to 16 inches. Caught another 5 to 6 rainbows in the 15- to 16-inch range and fat. One 19-inch rainbow had adusted jaw but fought really well. Fun day. ~ George Schmidt

Date Fished: 2014-03-17

Joe (Member) and I fished from 10am to 5pm. Day was overcast and up to 50 degrees. We started by working the spring creeks with streamers all the way up to property line. We caught 3 apiece (nice German browns and 2 nice cutthroats) on the way up. We also noticed on way up a small hatch, but fish were not rising to it so figured emerges and floaters for the return . Joe and I changed our rigs to triple nymph rigs, brown worms, hairs ears and princes, than 22 midges set 4ft for the deep holes for the return trip. We caught another 10+ fish on way back. I caught 6 straight small browns and rainbows 4”-8” and three nice rainbows, good to see future generations in the creeks. Joe caught a monster 22”+ brown near the road. Then we focused on the two ponds, the pond by the road is very low a mud whole, looks as if no fish would be in it. NOT! Joe and I pulled at least 10 very nice rainbow, browns and cutthroats out of it. They like the worms and caught a few on the smaller stuff. The big bond we fished near the two tubes, I caught a couple of cut-bows. The winds started to get ugly so called it a day. A great day I think. I’ll post a few photo’s on clubs facebook page. ~ George Schmidt


Comments on Arkansas River, Lake Fork A-4
Date Fished: 2014-02-22

Low 20's, overcast, howling wind and blowing snow made this a perfect day to fish this beautiful property. I caught 3 browns in about 90 minutes of fishing ranging from 10" - 15." This was my first time fishing here so I wasted considerable time looking for deeper pockets between the riffle sections. All were caught on different color #20 midge larva imitations (grey, white and red) fished deep behind larger beadhead nymphs. Two were caught in the final deep bend before the downstream bridge and the largest came from a pocket close to the bridge. ~ Matt Leavy
