Thought Id post a couple nice ones Ive found lately! If youd like to fish sometime let me know. Im always looking for someone to fly fish with around the weird spots in Colorado Springs area. Please catch and release on Fountain Creek as they are NOT stocked and quite polluted as well. Keep em wet!

Nice, was not sure if any fish survived the fire, floods etc that the creek has been hit with over the past few years.

Anglerwannabe, not anymore. Just fishing with my friends and family these days in between class.

Xavierk31, both! And above and below for both!!

SGM, the fire definitely killed a ton of them. I remember fishing manitou before and after the fire. Big difference

Im guessing that a bunch of them ran up into cascade, severy, french, ruxton, Sutherland and Cheyenne creeks to survive.

I would have never believed there's fish like that in there, but I believe it now.

Very nice.You would be surprised at where and what you catch.Just ask folks on the prarrie that have irrigation ditchs.

I like fishing the creek for the little native fish. I don't really fly fish but it would be cool to see some of the other areas around there

I saw you down there when I left work one day - at least I think it must have been you. Never saw anyone fish that spot before! I'm as surprised as anyone about that catch. Way to go.

Ive hit that a couple times. There are some good sized down there surprisingly. Just not a fan of all the trash and bums.
