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

I fished the lower half of the lease all day-just because I always fish the upper half. Caught fish on several patterns hoppers, a small tan stonefly nymph of my own design. mahogany duns in the afternoon,trico spinners, sculpins,BWO, etc. low flows and moss were the conditions of the day, but fish were cooperative.Landed 16 and hooked 20 or thereabouts.lost one Very large bow to the moss right at the net.All were the usual Yampa slabs from 15 to 24 inches except for one brookie of 10 inches. Where did he come from? I saw two big pike, but they ignored my streamers. the most fun fish were two big bows that were sipping bugs tight to the bank-I tossed them a black foam ant and they gobbled it. Another club member was there, but I never saw him- I wonder how he or she did? ~ Mick -- September 22nd, 2010
