- Fly Fishing
While we first learned to fly fish last
spring, this year we acquired waders and boots and began to enjoy
fly fishing much more often.
The following are from locations on
Boulder and South Boulder creek, usually just a 15 minute drive
or less out of town:
In the mountains:
Some bonus pictures from Gore Creek
in Vail and the Eagle River where much larger fish were caught
Finally see some Fall
fishing in Aspen by clicking here. And
A few images from Rogers Park on Boulder
Creek which is just a few miles above Boulder Falls in Boulder
Canyon. Brendan caught three or so small Brown Trout.
On this day we hiked about 45 minutes
in Walker Ranch down to South Boulder Creek just above Eldorado
Canyon. Where we parked was maybe a 20 minute drive from the
town of Boulder. Its amazing how many picturesque spots there
are so close to town. The water was still moving a bit fast this
day and while we eventually found a place to fish it was without
much success. But the hike was a really nice bonus.
- Gross Reservoir which feeds South Boulder
Another beautiful spot so close to town
is Dome Rock. Its a little further up Boulder Canyon close to
Nederland and its popular with rock climbers and fly fishers
alike. Circling around the rock formation is Boulder Creek and
there are lots of picturesque little pockets of water to fish.
We fished here twice this summer and had some success catching
mostly small Brown Trout.
Some early evening fishing in Eldorado
Canyon State park which was carved by South Boulder Creek.

Here are a few images from a guided
trip we took on the Eagle River near Avon, Colorado. Much bigger
fish were caught as you can see!
