Fished from 9AM till 4PM. Again the River was higher than normal. We fished mostly Nymph rigs in the main river. Between George and I, we caught a few fish on Copper Johns in the 18" range. I decided to fish the smaller branch closest to the Ranch. I caught 4 trout in the 20" - 23" on a hopper pattern. They were in the deep holes where you would expect them. If you fish here, with the water up do not pass up the smaller branch. ~ Joe Bo -- September 3rd, 2014

Beautiful day --60cfs. No hatches except a very small grey mayfly. No fish in AM. Fish turned on about 2 PM and had excellent fishing for about 2 hours using small yellow egg pattern and olive RS-2. Many small bows , mid sized browns and several large bows . Several chases on streamer but no hookups. Browns are already spawning--please watch out for, and avoid the beds. ~ Dave M -- October 11th, 2012

Water is low but still a good enough flow. Caught about 10 quality fish. One brown was 24 inches and at least 5 pounds. Also caught several rainbows in the 18- to 19-inch range. Best fly was the Flash Back Beadhead Pheasant Tail s16. One rainbow was caught on a hopper on a hopper/dropper combination and one smaller one on a red San Juan Worm. ~ JD -- September 25th, 2012

1st time fishing this property... river flowing a little high and off color for early April. Nevertheless, we landed a few rainbows (14 - 18") and a 19" brown trout. Fish holding deep in the slower water... sucess w/ streamers and BH nymphs with flash or color (purple/red). ~ BH -- April 12th, 2012

On a snowy October day, my guest Gary Smith and I had a great 2 1/2 hour adventure on C-56. a total of 14 fish landed and two break off's. Leave the 5x and 6x at home, this is definitely 4x water. Beautiful, healthy browns and rainbows in the 18 to 22 inch range who were attracted to flashback pheasant tails and purple princes. ~ Kyle Latham -- October 11th, 2011
