*Although I will not tell you the name of the creek I fished, I will divulge to you that it is in the Eagles Nest Wilderness, and it is a tributary of the Colorado River.
It’s Labor Day Weekend, you want to go fishing for a day but you know that every notable river in the state will be flooded with other anglers, what do you do? For me the solution was simple, grab my 2wt. and head for the hills. There is something about fishing the high country in September that has always kept me coming back for more. Maybe its the fall colors splashed across every mountain side, or the eagerness of every fish to eat your fly with reckless abandonment, or maybe just the joy of walking around the back country and not seeing another sole. Regardless of the reason, it’s an annual past time for me that has always produced some very special and memorable experiences.
