    A cold water report (Colorado)

    Had the day off and wanted to get some end of the season fishing in and it was a great day for it. We got a snow storm a few days ago but today it warmed up in the 50's down in the valley. I was the first and only person on the river at about 10am and it was nonstop action most of the day. Nothing huge but some decent browns and rainbows. Most where caught on dries and a few on streamers. I think I'm getting the hang of this fly fishing business.

    Way to go Razor! I was floored seeing this as the most recent thread, as I was just on my way to give a little colorado report as well. I just got back from a trip to breckenridge. Not expecting to fish, I didn't bring any gear. My wife and I were walking around town and naturally I had to check out the fly shops and one owner said the fishing was great, of course. I didn't really want to spend $500 on a new orvis rod, so I headed to walleyworld and picked up a $15 5-6 wt POS rod and a spool of cortland fairplay line. I used the twist ties in the pack to attach the spool it comes on to the reel seat and was on my way. Ended up getting 3 nice rainbows in the blue river right in town. We made a day trip out to the headwaters of the colorado river and I got a nice brown there. Such beautiful fish in a beautiful place. I'll concede, your trout are a little better fed than the ones I landed, that brown is a beast... but I still had a ball. Great job!
