VFG Fly Fishing Journal Day 3

September 28, 2009

Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, near Lake City, CO

Our day began with lattes courtesy of Dan File. We are so spoiled. We started fishing at the bridge that crosses the Upper Lake Fork. The river yielded a few fish, but due to the time of year, low flows make the fishing tough. We made our way upriver by leap frogging each other attempting to find the likely spots that hold trout. Ultimately, we headed over to the Smith pond. After one cast, it was game on. There were fish everywhere and they were hungry. Dry/droppers to start and then on to streamers. We hammered them! Check out the action.

And here it is....

Sean had just arrived at the Smith pond and promptly hooked up with a very large rainbow. Once I turned on my camera to film the action, the acrobatic trout didn't disappoint as you will see above.

Erik caught this Rainbow after one cast.

  1. Looks like Colorado is turning out to be a good trip. Everybody did well.


  2. Thanks for the comment. We're having an epic time. Today may be a little more interesting with rain and snow.
