Beautiful sunny fall day on A-8. My brother from out of state and a friend from Boulder fished with me. This was all our first time on this property. We started around 10:00 AM and fished until 3:00 PM. We landed approximately 40 Rainbows and Browns between us and had several get off during the fight. We all fished with a Hopper and BHPT dropper. That is the only combination we needed for the day. Of the 40 fish landed, 25 were caught on the hopper with the largest being a 23” Brown. ~ Ken B -- October 19th, 2015

Over 20 rainbows and browns to hand on double dry Amy's Ant and parachute Adams then with dropper of brown mercury midge. Water temp about 50-55. Slight clouds late in afternoon. Windy from the west. Gray BWO intermittent hatch all afternoon. Ambient temperature about 70. Amy's Ant was the lead dry fly/strike indicator. Very enjoyable day. Fished only about 3/4 mile of the property. No other fishermen in sight except one on another lease as we drove in. Thanks for keeping this lease active. It's a treat. ~ Gene -- October 14th, 2015

Lexy and I fished it yesterday. water is low, but sufficient. Caught trout from 12" - 18". About a dozen, Many hits though. Saw big trout in there 22-24" mostly in the pools. Only fished for 5 hours.Small, black streamers, a little flash helps. ~ -- October 6th, 2015

Rainbows and browns. Trico hatch in upper section until about 10:30 a.m. Then sporadic risers for spinners. BWO coming off the water in singles throughout the day. Browns like the right on the bottom Copper John, #18 with Amy Aunt for dry. Also struck on crystal flash yellow stimulator and hi vis Trico. 16 for the day--about half each brown and rainbow. Fished both sections--upper and lower. Two other rods on upper. Bright sun with no clouds or cover put trout down on the bottom. They were also easily spooked. Black flash wing RS2 #20 attracted some bites but hare to get the fish on the hook. Great day on the water. ~ Gene -- September 23rd, 2015

fished upper section from about 9-1. Water pretty low and fish spooky as usual. 7 or 8 fish to 13 " - two browns and rest bows. Hopper dropper ( red sj worm) brought 3 on dropper. A couple on hopper on top and a couple on small Adams on top . Went to lower section in PM - fished with streamer green and black - 5 fish including 18 fat brown and several 16" bows all sitting along banks as expected. Got broke off twice on 3x- there are some big fish there! Got some good pictures of herd of big horn sheep which hang around the creek and hills on either side. ~ Bill J -- September 11th, 2015
