The two of us arrived at the lake around 8am. We brought two 8ft pontoon boats in our trailer. There is a nice big parking area with a table that accommodated the trailer and truck well. After a few minutes of searching around we found a little hole in the bushes we could push the boats through. As we were pushing in we saw quite a few large cruisers and lots of surface action. The surface action stopped as we floated in. I started out with a #16 yellow stimi with a olive chironomid dropper and buddy was using a #16 olive elk caddis with the same dropper. We both hooked some nice 16 & 18 inchers right away. Then a little later one more each and that was it. So, change up time. I put on a blue #10 damsel and buddy a #14 olive mini leach - one more each....then nothing. Change up time. They were rising again so I went to a #20 BWO parachute and buddy a #22 BWO emerger 3 or 4 each and then nothing. It went like that the whole day. Caught one or two on each fly in the box. The denials started to get humorous. Fish would come and look and then their buddies would come look and turn away. "does that look real to you Phil ? I don't think so Hank...I'm hungry but I aint that hungry.." To many denials to count. All in all we caught about 10-12 quality fish each, but we sure had to work for em ! It was fun and a good way to spend a Sunday....we both left with big smiles.

Two of us fished this property - me for the first time and my partner for the second in 20 years. Fishes very similar to A 14 both in approach and methodology. Flow was absolutely perfect. Great, calm morning weather was replaced with gusty, windy scattered rain showers in the afternoon. Occasional bug hatches over the course of the day with the favorite appearing to be big PMD's around noon. We each caught around 30 browns most in the 7' to 9" range although we each caught a number of fish between 14" and 16" after lunch. All were very healthy. Dry / dropper rig of choice seemed to be that big PMD with a green copper john dropper. Caught fish equally between the two. We had a few other sporadic takes but the two mentioned above caught the bulk of the fish.

We had a great day fishing A-8. The weather was perfect and the fish cooperated. Caught a few 12" rainbows on emergers in the deep water. As the day went on numerous fish were rising and eager to take dry flies with an emerger dropper. Caught a few over 16" which is great for this little stream. The river was crystal clear and starting to get warm when we left in the afternoon. All in all a great day, we'll be back.

Had one of my best days ever fishing here on Tarryall. Fished the lower downstream stretch with other members at upstream beat. Flows were perfect in my opinion for this property at 65 cfs. Fished from 11 AM - 4 PM and stopped counting after 15 in the net, lost a bunch more. They were hammering a s18 flashback bh pheasant tail all day. Caught a few on s16 green copper john as well. 2 browns, rest were healthy rainbows all in 9-17 inch range. Flipped over a bunch of rocks and some submerged branches, lots of caddis casings and some mayfly nymphs, saw a few periodic caddis and PMD's I think flying around throughout the day but no risers. Caught everything nymphing. Have always fished the upstream meadow stretch in last few years, was a pleasant surprise fishing downstream. More structure for fish and shelter from wind but you have to bushwhack more thru willows and such. - MW

Beautiful day w/ temps in the mid 70s, partly cloudy with a few t-storms. Fished upstream for a couple hours using variety of stimulator/dropper combos. Caught 15 brown trout up to 14 inches, mostly on red copper john. Fished back downstream with olive streamer and caught another have dozen browns. Water levels still very high for this time of year.

Took my son to the Conejos for first visit. He caught nice bow on his first cast and that was how it was for three days. Lots of big fish mostly on green Pat's Rubber Legs #10. Fished B-35 Tuesday and had great day also. Special place as always.

Wow -- I am certain I lost count, but how about 49 fish? And yes, I was trying at dusk for 50. Pretty simple too: dark green copper john down low, and hopper up top. At times a hares ear also worked, so did a stimmi. If I wanted to, I probably could have done even better by nymphing but....why? Best in the am, but never really turned off until late in the day. Fish everywhere: banks, in riffles, and often big bows in shallow water. Most in the 9-15 range, some getting close to 18 or 19. Never caught or saw anything huge, but not complaining.

Water level was down from a week ago, but clear. The bottom of the property didn't fish as well as it normally does. Quickly changed from small streamers to hopper / dropper rigs. Picked up fish mostly on the dropper but a few took the hopper. Good number of fish with a mix of Browns & Rainbows with a couple Bookies, most in the 11 - 13" range. A couple in the 16" range. The top of the property did't fish too well it could be due to water temps when we got up there.

A8 is a old favorite that usually produces a lot of fish for us. Today that was not the case. Lots of rain, cool temperatures off color water made us work hard for any fish. No hoppers were about, and usually streamers are the " go to" on days like this but darned if they didn't get any attention. Got 4 on short lived AM hatch with parachute adams. Got 3 more by bouncing the bottom with flash back PTs. Saw a couple of risers slurping just below the surface and tried 6 different midge and small mayfly emergers but couldn't fool 'em. Next time will hopefully be another 20 to 30 fish day that is what we've usually experienced in years past.
