Michell White - Tumbling Trout

"Subaru-able Brookie Venues in South Park"

Many brookie fishing venues in South Park are easily accessible in a sedan type of car with public access to streamside fishing with parking, toilets, and maintained footpaths. These high alpine creeks and ponds are a great way to escape the summer fishing pressure we see at better known fly fishing venues in South Park, such as the Dream Stream and Eleven Mile Canyon. Another positive aspect of fly fishing for brookies at these higher elevations, is that the air temperature is cooler and the air quality is wonderful above the haze of smoke during wildfire season.

Night Fishing Presentation

Night Fishing Opportunities on the Colorado Front Range

For those busy with work, kids, life, etc. The prospect of a Full Day of Fly Fishing, and the hours of drive time included can be out of the cards. How do we get our fix when there are not enough hours in the day? Stay close to home, and learn how to fool fish after dark. Night Fishing, while introducing some unique challenges, can also provide solitude and excellent fishing for those willing  to venture out under the cover of Darkness.
