Spawning fish at the Blue River

Nice to see spawning rainbows at the Blue. Caught this nice male that was milting over the weekend. Did see several fish paired up doing the dance. Hopefully the Blue can have a sustainable natural fish population again. It's been a few years since I've seen any spawning activity at the Blue. Hope springs eternal!

Nice fish! Once again this year the Blue is classified as "Gold medal" for several stretches through the Silverthorne area. I have caught fingerlings as late as Nov last year that were not stocked. Hopefully this section of river is finally on the rebound and we will once again see the quality fishery it was 15 years ago.
