Trout Bum Trips 2011 | Roaring Fork River, August 6-7

July 12, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

The Roaring Fork River is undoubtedly one of the finest freestone rivers in the state of Colorado, and being a short 3 hour drive from Denver, is a great stop for our 2011 Trout Bum Trip schedule.  We've teamed up with Taylor Creek Fly Shop in Basalt, CO to offer our customers 2 days of float fishing down the Roaring Fork.  Early August is consistently a prime time for float fishing this river, as the abundant bug life and active trout make for prime conditions.  But hey, why don't we hear it from the man himself.  Here's what Taylor Creek General Mananger Will Sands has to say about what we can expect the fishing conditions in August to be like:

We are anticipating excellent conditions for floating the Roaring Fork this coming August. We are very fortunate that when many other western freestones are low, a bit too warm and often prove difficult or technical to fish in August that the "Fork" remains very fishy throughout the month.

Gear Review: Waterworks Ketchum Release

Gone are the days when that fish slips through your hands as your go to unhook it, only to speed off in an attempt to give you a "taste of your own medicine"...in the form of digging your dropper into your hand!  We've all been there...painful.

Gear Review: Amy’s Ant

This is one of the most effective patterns we have fished with here in Colorado.  Rainbows, browns, cutthroat and brookies all want to eat this fly.

Gear Review: Cliff Outdoors Days Worth Fly Box

I personally use my Day's Worth as a midge box, opting to keep all my tiny nymphs on the magnetic pad and my small midge dries on the foam strips.

Gear Review: Palsa Pinch On Floats Strike Indicator

July 6, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

I was first introduced to the Palsa Pinch On Floats strike indicators while fishing the Yampa River tailwaters below Stagecoach State Park.  This was probably 10 or more years ago, a time when the yarn poly-vee was as good as it got...at least, so I thought!  While sight fishing a decent run, holding a few wily rainbows, I noticed that whenever my massive "ball of yarn" came over them that they would move to the side.  Once my rig had drifted through, yep you guessed it, they would move right back.  Absurd I thought, fish can't be that smart.  That was one of my first introductions to highly educated trout that were sensitive to both indicators and split shot.  Upon my realization, I voiced my frustration to my buddy just upstream.  He had the solution, Palsa Pinch On Strike Indicators...his were white.  Since that day, even with the advent of the varying sizes/colors of the Thingamambobber, I've carried Palsa Pinch On Indicators in my bag.
