Fished Gianinetti's yesterday with my buddy Gary. Had a great day, about 50 fish between us. On the spring creek hoppers and small stimmies were the ticket. We took off the droppers after a while as they wanted dries. Gary lost a monster in the pasture stretch on the N Fork- his net was too small. On the pond in the evening a 16 parachute was all you needed. Roaring Fork was roaring, we did not catch anything there.

Fished great even though warmer water conditions. Fished deep holes with split shot and deeper runs. Most fish took burgundy worms and trico nymphs. Also a few on trico adults on the surface. Best fishing is early and late. For most recent conditions contact RMAC office or Steamboat Fly Fishers

Really fun day at A-8, we arrived at 9:00 am to a massive Caddis and BWO hatch. We parked at the main parking lot and walked down to the first couple bends. There were plenty of browns eating off the surface, we caught three or four right away. We then moved along the river towards the top section and got a couple 18-20" Bows. The first one hit a tan body chubby, he saw it coming down the run and came up and nailed it. Great fight and a really nice fish. As the day heated up activity slowed down, I got a few on the banks with a midge. As we moved up to the skinnier, faster water my partner and I both hooked into really good sized bows, 18-20". They both hit the Zebra midge on the first cast. The flows were definitely lower, the top section by the damn was really low but we did get a couple of small brownies at the end of the day.

The day started out slow. Flows dropped from 50s to high 20s the day before I fished. Hatch of small mayflies at about 9 AM. Switched to terrestials with a beetle and ant and landed 12 fish by 1:30 with the largest a 21" rainbow. A couple on small blue wing dry, rest on beetle and the ant. Best part of the day was a bighorn sheep that talked to me from atop the stone hill on the upper section early in the AM. Most fish were off riffles on shelves or very tight to the bank. Long casts were the most successful with spooky fish. 38 degrees at 8 AM and bonus was no mosquitoes.

Beautiful day with minimal wind. Flows were at 17cfs or so and water was clear. Some mayflies and midges but no real hatch and no risers at all. Caught mostly browns with a few bows and one brookie in the morning on a #18 stonefly trailing a SJ worm but it was slow going. Tried various dries and baetis, Copper Johns, other bead heads and annelids without success. Spooked a few but didn't see very many. Rain clouds rolled in around 2:00 so we left a bit early with about 18 between the 3 of us.

Awesome day on A-10! It was an absolute perfect day for fishing, good cloud cover, light rain and about 70 degrees. The flows were right around 50-60 cfs and the water clarity was a little off but that didn't effect the fish. We noticed a lot of Caddis, BWO and Yellow Sallies coming off, but I threw a foam PMD with a purple body and man did the big boys love it! At each bend I'd toss in my fly, let it setup and BAM, a 14-15 inch Bow would come from the depths and crush it! My partner was throwing streamers deep in the pools and he was pulling out some beauties. We fished the entire property, the highlight was really nice brown, 15-16 inch on the top half of the property. We tried standard dropper rigs, but the big ones just wanted to eat of the top. Great day, probably 10 fish for each of us.

Solid Half Day on the Colorado. We had ideal weather for fishing, overcast, misty and about 70 degrees. The flows were around 80 cfs. Myself and two others hit the river around 9:00 am and started catching browns right away. I fished the main hole by the picnic table and threw a PMD (purple body) with an yellow body EH caddis off the back. The first one of the day nailed the PMD on the second cast. I moved down the river to the long flat section before the last riffles and switched to a nymph rig, nothing. So I went back to my PMD/EH Caddis setup and started nailing them. I got a few small ones and then a really nice 15 incher slammed the EH Caddis. We then moved to the upper section and I stuck with my same rig. I threw to some feeding fish, got 12 incher right away. I then moved up to some faster water and threw to the bank, BOOM, best fish of the day. 16-17 inch brown hit the EH Caddis. We each got 4-5 fish in 3 hours, cool property, the cows tend to go for a swim in some of the holes...

Challenging late summer fishing here with tall grasses and small streams. Everything in the vicinity will grab onto your hooks, so careful with your casting. And stay low and out of sight - fish are spooky. But if you can get your flies presented will in the small creeks, look out and hold on, because these fish are MASSIVE and strong. Landed several fish in the +20" range, probably the largest fish I've ever caught in Colorado. Huge and strong. A word of caution to anglers fishing this property in the warmer days of late summer: these big fish needed lots of TLC to revive them and return them safely. Wet your hands and spend a few minutes reviving them to keep them alive and healthy. Land the fish as quickly as possible. All fish landed were over 15 inches and fat. Two great holes: One immediately below the pond held two 20+" rainbows. The other was on the middle fork, immediately below the bridge. Two 18" trout feeding below the culvert under the bridge. Tan hoppers and purple prince nymphs - that's all that was needed for the creeks. And don't overlook the large pond (the one with the island) - plentiful huge fish there too. Purple prince nymphs did the trick, as did hoppers in the late afternoon. The stretch on the Roaring Fork is rather shallow, but there are a few boulders and spots along the bank. Took two trout there, both a healthy size. One on a tan hopper, the other on a Pat's Rubber Legs trailing the hopper. LOVED this property - my new favorite RMAC spot!

Rough day at the Hogue Ranch. I went to buy a few flies at Steamboat Fly Fishers in the morning and they said things were rough. They were right. It was a really hot day and there was basically no bug activity that I could see. Fishing with a nymph meant checking for moss after every cast. I struck out, but I only gave it three hours in the morning. Things may have improved that evening. I think my timing was bad for this trip.
