With the weather all over the place here in Colorado you need to pick your days with precision.  The window opened up for me on the last day of the year – December 31, 2013.  With weather predicted to be in the 40s, flows on the South Platte River right about 100 CFS, and only a slim chance of precipitation in the forecast, I took the opportunity.  Plus, I was looking forward to catching my last fish of the year.
