>Can’t Tellya Creek


My daughter and her husband Kevin have been escaping the Arizona heat by hanging out at my place in the Wet Mountains of southern Colorado. The Arkansas has been a little slow because of the 90 plus degree weather. We’ve seen lots of bugs on the Ark from PMDs to yellow sallies and larger stone flies. Yesterday, we were even in the middle of a red quill hatch, but the fish just weren’t as excited about it as we were! Kevin’s a novice fly fisherman and has been holding his on! We decided today to go to my favorite little greenback creek and leave the heat behind. We hiked to about 10,500 feet above sea level and had a great day on native wild cutthroats! What a day we’ll both always remember! I loved watching Kevin catch fish after fish from the same pool! We saw a collection of aquatic insects from PMD’s to green drakes to stone flies and even a few caddis! Here are some highlight photos from our day! Can’t wait to get up there again in the near future!

  1. >Very cool spot! That's definitely the way to grow a new bug slinger. There's just nothing like native cutthroat.
