A Day On Antero.

Mike (Dad) and Judd (son) had the most beautiful weather on the lake that I have seen this year. Note the glass like water in the back ground.

Walk-Wade On The River

Larry caught this fish on the Arkansas at 6:35am.
The fish are hungry and healthy following the run-off.

Check out the beautiful spots on this fish.
I spent the morning rock hopping above Salida using a rubber legged hopper and no dropper. The fish were hungry.

The color of the cheek plates on this fish were beautiful!
Browns are few and far between this year so we took a photo.
Once again, Darlene caught the biggest fish of the day.
And she also caught the smallest fish of the day!!

A Birthday and Father's Day Outing for Don

Don says that the fish in Antero are bigger than the ones in the Arkansas River.
Danny had the highest fish count today.
Even the guide had a chance to catch a nice cutthroat.

The Longest Day of the Year on Antero.

No white caps at 1:30 pm. That's unusual!!

This is Chris' big catch from the Arkansas River this spring.

Now Chris has big fish caught from the river and from Antero Reservoir.
This is a Snake River Cutthroat.
Chris always smiles for the camera shots.
Chris let me fish today.

Father's Day.

The Fish Spotter was hard at work today.

Brian with many rainbows that he caught today. He thought the trip was a great Father's Day present.

Rusty asked if these are the average sized fish that are caught.

Brian and Rusty experienced some very big waves on Thursday. The trip was over in an hour, so they came back today and had a good day of fishing.

The River is Back!!!!

Little fish like big flies.

Big fly, bigger fish.

"Fish Spotter" went out for 2 hours this morning to see about the fishing. We put on a big rubber legged fly and the fish liked it. Looks like the fish weathered the runoff.

June 17th, 2010 Antero Trip

Today was a bad day for a boater on Antero. A rogue swamped his boat and sunk it. Luckily there was a bigger boat that went out to rescue him. There were no boats on the lake when I left at 8:30 am. Bad wind storm!!

Two Sisters Experiencing the Thrill of Catching Big Fish.

A tangled mess is the only thing that kept Naomi and Doreen from steadily catching fish.
Naomi with one of many large rainbows.
This large male cuttbow displays beautiful coloring.
Doreen (in the background) was waiting patiently for me to net her fish too.
This is called a double!
Naomi with another fish. These pictures are proof so that they can show their colleagues (who don't always believe their stories).
Doreen's first fish. She was happy.
Doreen with another fish.
And again, a big smile!!
Today was the first time we have caught 3 fish on a double. That means Naomi had 2 fish on and Doreen had one fish one. All 3 fish were landed. Naomi and Doreen said that this is the most fish and the biggest fish they have ever caught.

Antero on June 15, 2010

Brian was looking at our snow covered mountains. He was thinking about the 90 degree temperature and 90 % humidity that he left behind in Texas.
Bryan holding one of the fish he caught.
The smile tells it all.
The wind didn't blow us off today. At one time, Bryan counted 21 boats around us. Busy day at Antero.
