River: Glacier Creek - RMNP

Browns at Georgetown

Post By: Parkmomma      Posted: 9/27/2018 4:14:59 PM     Points: 0    
Just curious if anyone dislikes guiding on public water
In a low river area during Browns spawning period?
Area is less than a football field and I feel like teaching in a public area is intrusive

I'm pretty sure you are overlooking that "P" word here . . .Public . . .I could understand your issue if it was private property,but last time I checked this was still America,land of the free,home of the brave.
Is this about Glacier Creek or Georgetown?

I like to fish a spot away from the guides and catch more and better quality fish
It was free

Fishing for spawning trout is stupid anyway...

Depending on who the land management falls under, I believe guides must have a commercial operation permit with the managing agency, i.e. USFS on National Forest lands. So they are paying for the ability to use our (and their) lands. And of course the wildlife, in this case fish, are managed by the state, I would also assume they are licensed through the state and have to pay a fee for that. Given the budget shortfalls for agencies, I am ok with it.

I should follow up and say what I don't like is guides that feel that they have paid for the use, therefore have a priority over us to use the water. You don't run into it often, but sometimes do. Deckers can get that way. I mean who hasn't been high holed by a guide & his clients there?

Parkmomma . . . .Is this about Georgetown or Glacier creek RMNP?
You post is titled Browns at Georgetown,but is posted under Glacier creek RMNP.

Parkmomma . . . .Here are my thoughts. . . . . .

1. your post is vague. (Where?Who? What?)
2. You lack manners! ( Twice I asked you where this is and twice you ingnored me)
So,one more time . . . .where are you talking about?
Georgetown or RMNP?

HP no use getting upset dude. Not everyone checks this site every day, plus Glacier Creek and Georgetown are close to each other in the drop-down...could've been a miss-click. Plus this dude's just fishing for a reaction...

Here's my HOT TAKE that no one asked for:

Everyone (guides, meathunters, fly-fishermen, etc etc) has known about that spot for a decade plus at this point and yet there are still plenty of brown trout in G-town. In fact, looking at CPW's numbers, there are *too many* and there's not enough food available. Yes it is frustrating that the large fish get harassed (and killed) when they're just trying to do they thang, but honestly it's pretty clear at this point that G-town's fishery is not in any kind of danger.

brookieflyfisherman,I'm not upset.I just had to give Parkmomma my "thoughts".
A wise man once said "manners cost you nothing" . . . .
My "thoughts" are she has no manners . . . .I first asked her the question back in September,plenty of time to reply by now.
