5-13-17, Solid day on A-3, we showed up around 8:45 am and the river was way off color and moving pretty quick (close to, if not above, 600 cfs). I was pretty worried because of the water color, but we headed to the lower boundary and started throwing streamers (double thin-mints) we got a few nice ones right away. We continued upstream throwing streamers and chartreuse caddis pupa and kept bringing them in. After lunch we headed to the upstream boundary, big hole at the railroad bridge. We threw the same rigs and got another 8 or so. They repeatedly hit any color pats and beadheads. All in all we caught 20 or so fish ranging from 6" to 17', mostly browns with an occasional bow. There was a lot of bug activity but the water was moving to quick for any dry fly action. Great stretch, must be a blast when the water is better clarity.

Fished A8 with Jim Mousseau for about 3 hours before we were "hailed" off the river and the temp dropped to 34 degrees. Water was very skinny but the fish were very active. Fish were extremely skittish in the slow water in the middle third and unless you wear your cloak of invisibility, hard to catch. Even casting a line upstream spooked them before it hit the water. Managed to catch a few in the deeper bend pools. Fishing was very good in the riffles in the upper third of the property. Fish weren't too selective with most on a 16 red copper john and beadhead midge or pheasant tail droppers. Didn't get down to the lower third. Caught about 10 fish each, all nice fish in the 12"-18" range, mix of bows, cutbows, and browns.

We benefited from cloudy skies all day and while rain was a constant threat, it never actually did rain. We focused our efforts on the spring creek and ponds and were fortunate to witness a strong BWO hatch on the ponds in the early afternoon, and we took full advantage of it. Streamers continue to work well on this property as well, both on the ponds and spring creek. We landed about a dozen fish between 2 fishermen, all in the 16 to 20 inch category, mostly rainbows. Once again this property delivered a great experience!

Water flows on Tarryall Creek remain low (20cfs) and clear, making fishing challenging. The upper and lower ends of this property seem to hold most fish. We landed 5 good fish between 2 fishermen, all on streamers. South Park winds were particularly brutal that day and an approaching storm sent us packing around 4pm. Nonetheless, it was a fun day on the river in a scenic surrounding.

4/21, What a cool property, this was the first time we fished it. The whole day revolved around throwing streamers and a few long bodied BWO's. We started at the fishing pond, I caught 10 right away and my fishing partner caught another 5. We worked the streams pretty hard with some production but the water was really stained due to a rain/snow the night before. I went through both gates and through streamers the whole time, landed a couple nice fish for smaller water. We found one hole that produced easily 8+ fish that fought really hard and I think the smallest was 15" and the biggest was 23". Love the multiple options on this property. ~ Brad Rettig

We arrived about 8:30am. Breezy and clear day. Rougher then normal day, the gusts of wind made it very difficult to manage casting, etc. We caught ~10 Rainbows ranging from 13" to 19". Some very fat. Caught them on hoppers and amy's ant, red copper johns and Streamers. We tried leach's and appropriate techniques to no avail and they did not bight any other nymph or midge pattern other then the copper john,.. Still fishing is better then work any day.

My MD (Alexander) and I arrived about 9am, on water at 9:30am. A clear and cool day w/brief gusts of wind. We fished the upper section for whole day. Flows were very low, lower than I’ve ever seen em’ on this property. Caught fish from first cast and many times we both had one on the line. Nymphed up to bridge, switched to streamers back down. Between the two of us, a 50+ fish day, three or four fish out of every whole. Caught them on foam back emergers, cadis pupa & pat’s rubber legs. A few on large attractors like Amy’s Ant’s, Stimulators and Cadis dry’s. The Streamer Black/Green and were very effective when we hit the same pools again. The fish were little Browns (6”-12”), and very nice Rainbows and Cutbows (14”-20”). We found lots of fish in water, many podding up in the deeper pools. Finished the day about 5pm.

Blue skies, low flows (16cfs) and gin clear water made for a tough day on A-8. We managed to land a dozen fish between 3 fishermen, with about as many lost fish. The river is full of fish but they are so easily spooked or distracted by spawning that the real action is yet to come. In spite of all these challenges, we still landed a few nice trout, mostly on streamers, with several in the 18 to 20 inch category. The biggest surprise of the day was the fact that the lower section fished really poorly. Once the water level rises and adds a little more color, and the fish get out of spawning mode, this property will be excellent to fish. I suspect that to happen in the next month or so.

4/10 My buddy and I fished A-8, flows were around 20-25, extremely windy, gin clear water and sunny. The conditions were tough and the fish were really spooky, but the deeper pools held some fish. We caught 5-6 using purple midges, bead heads and streamers. Around 2:00 the wind died a little and there was a BWO hatch and the fish were feeding off the top. Towards the top of the property we saw a couple fish that looked like submarines, didn't fish to them because it looked like they were in spawning mode. Still love this property and look forward to returning when the flows are up.

Fished from 9:30am to 1:00pm. Caught 5 good sized rainbow (12 to 16 inches in length) and 2 small brown trout. The fish weren't very particular as I caught them on red and green copper john, black stonefly nypmh, and a brown San Juan worm. All of the rainbow were caught in deeper and darker pools.
