Tough day on C-51. Flows seemed great with highs in the low 50's and pretty windy. Caught one small brown on a sz 18 bh pheasant tail fished deep below a red copper john with a couple split shot and an indicator and that was the only fish I saw all day in the river. Saw one fish in the pond. Normally I would expect to spook fish occasionally when walking by the stream but not even one today. Water temp in the river at 42 degrees and in the pond at 46 degrees, so maybe that hurt the fish activity. Tried dry-dropper, standard streamers, and indicator nymphing and none were effective. Same story in the pond. I think if the fish were coming up for dries or chasing streamers then maybe this spot would fish better. But on a day when they seem to be deep in the cutbanks and holes and sluggish, it's a tough one. ~ bebel -- October 5th, 2014


Fished C51 Pond from 4:30-6:oo 6 fish over 20". Best was lunker over 6lbs. ~ Nadia Frank -- September 4th, 2014


I fished five hours on the 21st of August. Conditions were great and no wind. I caught and released 22 fish ranging from 6 to 20 inches. Best patterns were a rusty stimulator # 16 and a black beetle #14. A few took a ginger quill #16. Great fun all on dry flies. I am always amazed to hook one or two fish in the 4 to 5 lbs. bracket, and I an never expecting a fish that size. ~ Jim Hughes -- August 23rd, 2013


Only had a short time to fish so spent about an hour and half on the stream and caught several browns, mostly small until I hooked a 19" hook jaw Brown much to my surprise. Started with a hopper and kept it on the entire time. I'm sure a dropper would hve been productive but figured if they will take the dry why fight it.The stream is still flowing well for this late in the year so the deeper water and undercut banks were the spots to hit. Fished about a half hour on the pond on the way out and picked up 5 rainbows, all on black wooly buggers. Largest was about 15" but they were all very healthy and good color. With the Aspens in Fall color and catching fish it was a great day! ~ John Chandler -- October 2nd, 2011


Fished from 11-4 with minimal success. The water is low and the fish are deep in the holes and hard to get at. Caught a few dinkers in the bottom of the riffles but got tired of losing flies to the roots and stuff where the real fish are hiding. Lots of hoppers but the fish just are not coming up for their food. ~ MG52 -- September 12th, 2010
