Hey all, went out to the Glennwood this week to fish the roaring fork for spring break. the fishing was decent and we all left pretty satisfied. I caught most of my fish on my homade rubber legs that mimmics a stone fly. with this being said i landed a total of about 6 rainbows, 5 browns, and 2 whitefish. we did manage to bring the pontoon boat up this trip, but i did not manage to take any pictures on the float trips. although i was successful from shore and landed about 4 bows 2 white fish and one brown. i got most of these pictures except the brown and the smaller whitefish. i did also manage to catch a nice 20" rainbow on the colorado near the boat ramp after the roaring fork inlet. im a little depressed i couldn't get a pic of that to show around, but it was still fun. The next day my dad caught an 18 inch bow in a different hole on the colorado. both rivers are looking pretty hot, hope to go back soon.

Nice job! sounds like fun. It always takes a little extra effort and planning to be able to capture some nice pics, and I can understand exactly where your coming from. I heard the bwo hatch was pretty kick ass there last week too. Btw, I have heard from reliable sources that stones don't work as well because so many people use em. I usually do fine with em but it is an interesting theory.
Hey fishinwfoos, it's funny I say this but the guy at roaring fork anglers flyshop said everything Is working. He was actualy right this time. Steamers would probably work great on the Colorado, but this time of year I'd stick with my go to guys. The pheasent tail, and stone fly nymphs. But that's just me, I probably could of thrown on a mouse with a copper dropper and still caught fish. That's just how it was haha. But yeah also a lot of hatches. Mostly very small and dark blue wing olives were coming off. It was the most fish I've ever seen on the surface on the roaring fork, they were feeding in giant pods. It be pretty cool to see what I saw again. Too bad I was rowing when most of the action was happening. That's what I get for being a kid...
