It's terrible at the launch on the west side. Saw guys enter over on the dam. I was up there with Mark, water quality was surprisingly good, as it was clear and at 59 degrees. Fish were healthy. ...

Kinnikinick

Anyone been there recently? It's been 30 years since I've really fished there. Caught some decent rainbows then, but no clue about it now.

I have fond memories of Ashurst as a kid, catching nice sized trout in clear water on a fly rod with my dad. As a matter of fact he landed a 20 inch 'bow right before they originally treated the...

I don't think the tail is too sparse on the first one. I know that there are different thoughts on how much material for tails, and I'm definitely on the side of less material. Those are good...

Christmas Tree is an extemely special place for me. I agree that the Apache trout aren't the most hardy of the trout family, but I don't care, as they are a beautiful fish that are more than willing...

That is exactly what I'm afraid of. I realize we need all of the precip we can get, but it is disappointing when those 3 lakes kill because they are some of my favorites.

Cresent Lake

Anyone heard if the fish are making it in Cresent this winter? The same for Sunrise. I was upset to hear about Carnero, and am really hoping the other two don't kill.

I did make it up there this morning. The fishing for the trout was slow, but they are there. Water was quite a bit lower than when I went last year. Not that I'm the greatest stream fisherman, but...
