Default flyfishing with the rising sun?

Ideally, this would involve a really cool trail, but I am not really aware of any wheeling with decent fishing.

However, I am aware of some really good fishing spots, in fact, you can fish the stream on the way up to jenny creek.

I would prefer to have the emphasis on stream/river fishing rather than a lake trip. Maybe a trip down to eleven mile for an overnight? I would be happy to assist with some lessons for those that are willing. I am no orvis guide or anything like that, but I can catch fish.

An alternative could be a hike in, fish, hike out, as I know of a few of those spots as well.


Let's fire it up!

I'm down 100%, so is my old man. Jenny creek sounds interesting, a wheeling/fishing combo would make for a helluva day. Let's get something put together!

I would be interested in that. don't have any equipment, but I would like to give it a try. I see some of the cheep kits at some of the sporting good stores would they be a waste of $ for a virgin?

no, you don't need a 400 rod/reel combo to have fun and catch fish. You can get a 50.00 walmart/kmart combo, but the real money will be in the fly's.

you will need about 20 or so to get started.

I'm itching to get my fly rod out again and do some fishing! What about Wheeler Lake (I know you said rivers preferred...)?

I'm in. Assuming I'm in town, I'm also itching to get a wheelin and camping trip in. I would do a lake trip as well, but river/stream is good with me too.

I would love to do this; infact this has been "on the list" for a long time.

The problem is finding stream/wheeling combo. The closest to hitting on all cylinders is Jenny creek. Boulder creek is fishable from rollinsville to the "new" tunnel, then we can camp up on Jenny Creek. We won't find any keepers for dinner (not that I do that much anyway) but yankee doodle lake is stocked up at the top.

for pure fishing, you can't beat the poudre or eleven mile canyon, but there is no "wheeling" close by

North supply creek has fish in it, but is REAL tough to fish.

Tarryall creek is a fun hike in from what I am told, but I've never done it.

Check with Angler's Covey in the Springs. Talk to Dave. Very old and good friend of mine. Knows all the spots - including those near 4x4 routes.
