Fly Fishing Report: The YR Ranch

By: Jul 09, 2013 | Author: Tucker Ladd
As we recently reported in the “1303” newsletter, our property on the YR Ranch is fishing exceptionally right now.  Brown and rainbow trout are actively feeding on midges, caddis and grasshoppers.  Early in the morning, fish were recently found gently sipping smaller flies in the tailouts.  This required delicate and accurate presentations.  Later in the day the fish seemed to move out into faster water and eagerly charged larger patterns including Parachute...

Fly Fishing Report: The Colorado River

By: Jul 03, 2013 | Author: Tucker Ladd
The Colorado River was flowing clear – clear enough to easily follow a streamer as it was retrieved from the bank towards our boat as we floated lazily between the massive red sandstone walls.  Sometimes the strips were short and fast, other times slow and deliberate.  And when a fish followed from a deeper hole or recess in the river, we could watch that as well. The only problem was – the fish wouldn’t commit.  They’d poke and punk at the smaller...
