look up "big creek" wyoming - south side of the medicine bows. some nice stream fishing up there, no so much on the wheeling, lots of double track.

there are 5 rivers/streams to fish in the taylor park area - tons of light wheeling. Tin Cup, Tomichi, etc.

Gold River outside crusty butt, where the crystal mill is. part of triple bypass some years.

Have any of you guys done the South Derby Road (FDR613) in the White River NF, SE side if the Flat Tops? Haven't been up the road since about 1995 on an elk hunt at which time I tore a fist sized hole in the transfer case of my 1990 F250. Road can be brutal - maybe 12 miles to the top - and heavily traveled if we do it on a weekend ... but South Derby Creek has good fishing and the lakes - Emerald, Crescent and Mackinaw can be FABULOUS!

Cool camping and quiet during the week!

Has anyone ever brought gear to fish the Platte from the bottom of Hackett or Lonwater gluches? My father-in-law has a cabin right near there and it's on my list for this summer. We usually just drag the boat over to 11 mile but taking the atvs down for some river fishing might be fun too!

Strangely, I've never fished the canyon, only the reservoir. I will have to add that to my list though. It's only 20 minutes from the cabin!

It is great! Unfortunately we don't get up there as much as I'd like to with work and kid schedules, but when we are there the amount of fun to be had is almost limitless!

Fishing boat, atvs, hiking, napping!

I have fished down there a few times. The Hayman Fire did so much damage that its been very slow to recover. Too much sediment covered the stream bed and destroyed the aquatic insect life. No fish food, means no fish. At some point it will be a good fishery again. I've only hooked two fish down there. Both small bows.

I found an area that may fit the bill of 4WD required, overnight required and fishing available. I'm going to try and fit it in prior to CM and before winter runoff starts. It's a little out of the way and will take 4-5 hours to reach from Denver. There looks to be about 30 miles of off highway travel. Primative camping is permitted. From the little info I could gather, there is a 4-5 miles stretch that 4wd is a must. What that means, I'm not sure? I'm looking at doing a pre-run within the next few weeks. It may have to be on a Thursday-Friday or possibly a Friday-Saturday.

If it is as good as I hope it is, I'll start setting up an official run for later in the summer. I'd like to take a small group on this pre-run if anyone is interested in joining me. Right now, it's just me and Big Country. Since I don't know what we'll run it to, I would ask that you be prepared for anything and set up accordingly. It could be snowy, muddy and nasty.... Or it could be just an afternoon drive. Won't know til we get there.
