Beautiful country

I've lived in Colorado for a long, long time but this is one place I had never been, that is until last weekend. What a beautiful place it is . So beautiful that many others were there to enjoy it as well ( the campground was totally full and this was the 8th through the 11th) I believe this is the new normal. Fishing for stockers was excellent and we had no trouble catching as many as we wanted. I have to admit that we used bait but only kept those that we injured. BTW, th aspen up there were mostly blown out but I can imagine it was spectacular up there in the previous two weeks.

It is one of my favorites. They were working on the dam this summer. Is it finished.

wait.. what? you kept the ones that were injured????

THANK YOU for that. What you just described is my issue with using small trebles and bait. I've seen way too many people rip the guts out and throw them back. Worse is.. I used to do that too, a long time ago.

Very awesome you had a new adventure! Thank you for sharing.

but but.. where are the pics?

Trotline-- Dam is apparently finished as there was no work going on there. and Wannabe, why would you want photos od stockers?

Hunter Creek, I couldn't agree more! Stopped by for the first time early summer coming back from camping and that place was great! Awesome place to floattube too. Lots of stockers and a few larger, pretty fish mixed in there.

To Hunter Creek. How is the water level ? Sylvan Lake is rated as the most scenic campground in Colorado. First time we camped there it was late October with all kinds of aspens and bushes turning colors.

Cardo == Water level was full but the aspen had mostly blown out.
