Rainbows and crossing a fast river

Felt good to get back out on the water this past weekend!!! Work has been crazy busy for both Cheyenne and I, and we haven't had much time to fish over the past few weeks.

We decided to get after some trout on the Roaring Fork River and had a blast! Ghost brown got some good attention, and got a few fish in the net. Cool, sunny morning with no wind at all. I lost my water thermometer (knew I would) but the water was really cold. I had to put in some work to get into one of the fish crossing a high current river. I go over some tips that has treated me well in these occasions in the video. Pictured below is the current rushing against my legs just a few feet from shore.

Come check out the action below! Hoping to get back into the mountains this upcoming weekend!

Good video as usual, healthy bows in there. Do you have felt souled boots? If not you should try them they really do work well.

-not too old to fish

Yes and I love them, that's what I'm using in this video. I've had this same pair for the past two years and they work pretty well still. Going to rebuy some next Spring 😀

Hahaha well with the spots you got, I can see why you haven't! It's usually a productive river though for me
