Fishing Mid-morning

This colorful rainbow took a red 2-bit hooker.
This short nosed rainbow also took the red 2-bit hooker.
All the fish I caught were healthy!!
This brown has some colorful spots.
The last fish I caught took the yellow stone fly.
Fishing was great until the wind came up.
The wind chill dropped the temp. 20 degrees. Time to go home.

Pheasant Feathers

'The Fish Spotter' has a good nose for sorting pheasant feathers.
I was successful in bringing home my limit of pheasants in Kansas.
Some of the feathers will help catch fish in 2011.

A Beautiful Fall Day On the River

The Arkansas is gin clear and is running at 386 cfs
Darlene and I floated from the 166 Bridge to Salida East.
50 feet from the put-in, this rainbow hit the yellow PMX.
My wife says that I need to take smiling lessons from Chris.
This rainbow took the red 2-bit hooker.
This rainbow also took the PMX.
Some of the browns had their spawning colors.
This was the last fish of the day. I boated over 30 fish and missed 20.
Made for a fantastic day on the river since Darlene forgot her
fishing license. She had to row all day!!!!
I did buy her lunch at the Boathouse.

The Last Day of the Season

The browns are changing to their fall colors.
The rainbows liked the Two Bit Hooker.
This male aggressively took the PMX.

A Cool Crisp Day on Antero

The wind blew most of the day.
No big fish today. What's up with that?
The next morning, Darlene, Queso, and I woke up to snow flurries.
Buffalo Peaks were covered with snow, so we loaded up and went home.
That is the end of the season for the Lund boat.
