Who knew that pigs could swim?

Made it to the Granby area for a wedding this weekend and snuck away a few different times to get in my fix with the tug-drug!

Fished above Grand Lake at Adam's Falls and did well in the short amount of time I fished with several Brookies on Baetis and Midge imitations (sorry, so pics).

On Saturday we were on our way to Monarch above Granby, but saw some stranded anglers - I pulled over and jumped them as they told me that there were some BIG fish down there. I told em that I happen to be a fan of big fish and made my way down the hill. The smallest fish I had on was 14" or so, but the rest were 18-22" and fat!

Kemp Breeze? This was my first time fishing that river in the general area, so i'm not too familiar w/ that... I did notice that private property was just downstream of me about 100 yards from the dam. Is it below that?
