The Permit Monkey

April 5, 2013
Author: Will Rice

For most people, the sensation and experience when they finally sight, cast, present a fly, hook, fight and land a permit is one that stays with them for a lifetime.

For me, the feeling lasted for all of about twelve and a half minutes.  Give or take.

2013 Snowpack Update

March 27, 2013
Author: Trouts Staff

Denver Water has just announced that Stage 2 Watering Restrictions are going to go into effect April 1, 2013.  Essentially, this will limit the number of days per week households are allowed to water their lawns.  While this announcement may sound alarming to many residents and anglers alike, we at Trout’s would like to “clear the air” so to speak and elaborate on exactly what this ultimately means for our 2013 spring/summer fishing season.

You don’t have to live in Colorado (or the West that matter) very long to realize that the amount of snow we get each winter directly correlates to how much water will be running through our rivers come summer.  In the past 5 years Colorado has seen dramatic swings in our winter snowpack; a record setting 2011 where we experienced levels upwards of 200% of average, to a dismal 2012 where we witnessed record low snowpack across the state.  Looking forward now to Summer, we are actually in much better position than many media and water managers would like you to believe.  As of March 27, our statewide snowpack sits at 79% of average, with many river basins in the 80%+ range.  Considering that this time last year we were looking at numbers in the 50%-60% range, I’d have to say that our current snowpack seems pretty good.

There is no doubt that springtime fly fishing in Colorado is upon us.  We had some wind, some rain, snow, big smiles… and a ton of fish hooked and landed this past weekend. Check out these images from our On-Stream Beginner Fly Fishing School that was just held at the Rowdy Trout Ranch, located on the North Fork of the South Platte River.
