Fish: Brown Trout

Big Trout all Morning, One of my best mornings ever

I've been meaning to fish this spot for the past several years and I finally got around to it...Couldn't be happier to have made that decision. From the minute we got there, until the sun came up, the bite was incredible and the trout caught were all beautiful and healthy! Mostly all of them were big too, with the cookie cutter size of the morning probably being 18". Everything caught was within roughly 2 hours.

Chilly morning for early June but nothing too bad. No wind and the water was fairly clear. We fished a creek mouth that was emptying really clear water and made for quite the contrast into the Colorado river. Dynamic Lures HD Trout Version 2 and Size 18 Gold head caddis fly nymphs made for one of the best bites I've ever experienced! I'm starting to get the hang of fly fishing in the rivers a bit, caught some good ones double nymphing

Oh how many times I have driven past that spot and wanted to fish it, but it was always during the forbidden period when I had time. Thanks for confirming my intuition about what it would be like to catch it at just the right time.

I was really happy to finally fish this. I had plans to fish it for the past sseveral years for the opener but always ran into issues when the time came. Hope you crush it if you go fish it!

I had fished this spot over a decade and a half ago before the regs were put in, we caught so many MA fish back then lol. I'll have to go up and try the West side sometime or all the the way up to the train bridge over the Colorado.
