I had a good afternoon on the White. On one of the first casts in the Donkey pool I took a 21" heavy brown on a gold copper john. Then a few smaller bows and a couple of whitefish. Went above and took one fish--an 18" brown on a hopper. Moss was pretty bad as the club forewarned me when I booked, so you needed to get a hit early in the drift. Fishing probably would have been faster in the AM, as it was a very warm day, however the two large browns made the day. The only strike on the hopper was the larger brown. Flow was about 200 cfs at Meeker.

Fished with 2 friends. Great day. Fished upper stretch until 1 PM, until a storm threatened. Many fish mainly on dry dropper, Amy's Ant or Renegade on top and bhpt dropper. Afternoon fished lower section. Hoppers tight to the bank were the best option. Cutbows, rainbows, browns and one brookie made it to the net.

Great day on A14. First time I have fished the property. Walked to the downstream border and fished up in the AM based on the recommendation of the owner. Fished royal coachman and bhpt all day. Too numerous to count fish, all small, largest a 12 " brookie.

Took two ladies for their first Fly Fish. Love this property for introducing folks to fly fishing for the first time. Varied water and a great setting. Started on the spring creeks, worked the ponds and by the end the ladies both caught ~10 fish each. Rainbows and Brookies. Three very nice bucks ~18" in spawn colors & jaws (weird for Rainbows to be in color in the fall). Not bad for their first fish. Most on Pat's Rubber legs, Soft hackle swing fly's and foam back emergers. After they departed I took an hour on the water an caught another 10 fish, doing my "speed run" starting at the top of the creeks and racing down using streamers - Fun!!

Simple Rx: Hopper or ant on top, green copper John or BHPT w flash 3-4 below. Long leader as water clear and low. Over 40 fish between us, with 4 over 20"! I was glad I had my 6 wt rather than a 4 as these were powerful fish. Water perfect, day overcast, location beautiful. We only covered 1/3 of the property...

Fished in the afternoon. There were thunderstorms around so I did not go too far from the lower end and the car. I caught fish on Chubby Chernobyls, Bead Head Pheasant Tails, and large black streamers. No hoppers around, no mayflies or caddis. Fish were in the riffles and pools. Caught some nice 12" -14" fish, lots of dinks, no big fish. Beautiful spot!!

Hoppers. Fished alone and landed 18 all on hoppers. Missed another 5 or 6 on good takes. Bank weeds are getting high so good casts are a must.

Guided a colleague and his 6'8" son for their first Fly Fish. Weather was perfect. Started on the creeks, each caught a number of rainbows 3"-19", one very nice buck. Caught on a hackled swing fly (Nymph Rigs), foam backed emergers and chocolate nymphs. After lunch to the ponds for some streamer and dry fly back casting lessons. A bit slower afternoon but both caught 4-6 fish each on Streamers and a couple fish on Caddis and dropper. For their first time, by the end of the day both had good back casts and good dry fly landings on the water for takes.

My 2 buddies from Michigan and I drove over to A-8 from Fraser over Guanella and Kenosha passes, and the gorgeous drive put us in the mood to rip some lip! We parked at the upper parking area in view of the dam and spread out across the meadow to try our luck. The fish were pounding a hopper dropper rig early, focusing on the hopper. A beautiful 17" Brown eagerly took a renegade I had trailing behind a foam hopper and my day was made. The action slowed down in the early afternoon and a front moved through and hit us with some pretty hard rain. When the lightning danger subsided, I switched to a streamer with good success, and switched between streamers and hoppers for the rest of the afternoon. Green streamers were my most successful tool. One of the Michiganders is a long-time fly fisherman and he had excellent success all day using black streamers with a little flash. The other is more of a novice, and he managed to land several fish and plenty of action to whet his appetite for future expeditions. Both were struck by the amount of fishable water and the sheer number of trout inhabiting this gem of a fishery. A really nasty storm chased us off at about 6:00 PM, having caught about 30 fish between us with 6 of them being 15" or larger. We all left happy, but it sure would've been nice to stay and catch the evening rise...

Excellent day on the Fraser River property. As usual the directions are spot-on and the place is easy to locate. My buddy and I started late morning on a beautiful bluebird Sunday. I headed downstream to the boundary, and he started near the parking area and fished upstream. We were both getting action on dry/dropper rigs, I was using a small hopper and a variety of droppers. He was using a renegade with a prince dropper. We each caught 6 or 7 fish in this manner, most in the 10 - 12" range, with 15" being the largest. I switched to dark streamers in the early afternoon and quickly picked up 4 more fish, including a beautiful 16" Rainbow in a deep pool. We took a break around 3:00 and headed into Winter Park for an early supper at Hernando's. We got back on the river between 5:30 and 6:00 and this is when things got interesting. I headed upstream to the big hole beneath the house visible from the parking area, and proceeded to pull 11 fish out of there using a black conehead flash a bugger, while losing 5 or 6 others. The sizes were still modest, 10 - 12" but I had a ball. I ended up landing 19 fish before darkness drove me back to the car, with 3 of them being 16-18". There were some big fish lurking upstream of the electric fence, but I only landed one of them. My friend caught some fish on his dry-dropper rig, but unfortunately never got the streamer memo. This is a beautiful property filled with willing fish. As always it pays to keep trying different approaches until finding success.
