Thank God for rivers this spring. Between the Grandkids' busy schedules, stormy weather with wind every weekend and hunting I haven't even started the Smokercraft one time yet. With the snow forecasted tonite looks like The boat n Blue Mesa will have wait till Friday now. Today I was able to sandwich 2 hours of tail water fishing on the Unc below Ridgway Dam in the quality water between free landfill day, GD 's 5th BD party and her soccer game this morning. It worked great despite the crowds on the river was able to get some reaction bites and land 5 cutts from 3 to 5 pounds or so in the window record the rain, the wind and the BD party. The approaching storm and some legs on the heavy Bitch Creek nymphs turned em on for a bit. The many guys going tiny or throwing bacon n eggs seemed to be having a lot less luck. Now for some pics of some pretty and feisty cutties
