Charlie touched the first fish.
Ross followed with this beautiful brown.

The red 2-bit hooker caught this brown.

Ross caught this rainbow on a black woolly bugger.

Charlie and Ross started out with a hopper/dropper set up.
The clouds came over so they switched to a woolly bugger set up and
they turned many many many fish.

Wally shows off some of the bigger
fish of the day.

Matt smiled after he landed this brown.
Matt took the honors of catching the biggest fish of the day.

Salida to Howard Float 8/21/2010

Rick caught this rainbow on a rubber legged hopper.

Rick also caught many
fish on a hot wire prince.

This was the last fish Mike could catch. On his next cast, he broke his rod.

Mike said that he thought the fish he caught were bigger than ones
caught on previous floats. That is a good thing to hear.

Heckla to Salida East

John caught some very nice fish today.

This fish had beautiful orange spots.

Yesterday's major rain storm blew out Squaw
Creek. We decided to fish upriver and it was
a good choice. It was my first trip out of Heckla.
I suspect I will be doing more. It will take a few
days for the river to clear up.

A Foggy Morning On Antero

I had to use the GPS to get to the fishing spot.
Mark proudly displayed a rainbow.
