Trip Report | Happy Meadows on the South Platte

June 16, 2011
Author: Tucker Ladd

With runoff is full swing, and a day off to hit the water, I was a bit concerned that any and all tailwaters near the front range would be a crowded mess.  With few other options, and a strong desire to chase some trout, I opted to hit up 11-Mile Canyon knowing that there are plenty of other options if all else failed.  Upon arrival at 11-mile around 8:30am, my worst fears were proven true with countless vehicles heading up the canyon for a day of fishing.  Not wanting to endure a day of combat fishing, I retreated downstream to the Happy Meadows section of the South Platte.  There I was pleasant greeted to great looking water, minimal crowds, and trout feeding aggressively all day.

Happy Meadows on the South Platte River.  An often overlooked section of public water.

Gear Review: Fishpond Prairie Grass Kit Bag

June 15, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

I haven’t been much for fancy luggage since an upscale suit bag I was toting disappeared from a baggage claim area in 1995. I’ve used plain brown wrapper ever since.

Then last month I decided to attempt a week-long bonefishing trip with nothing more than a carry-on bag. I went rummaging through the ziploc storage, but they were all full of year-old peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I made last time I thought a zombie invasion was imminent. And I’d already calculated that I needed somewhere north of 2,000 cubic inches anyway.

Gear Review: Sage Xi3 990-4 Fly Rod

June 14, 2011
Author: Will Rice

I must start off by admitting that when it comes to fly rods, I have always preferred something with a more moderate action.  So when I packed up a 9wt. Xi3 for my trip to Bolivia, I was a bit hesitant that the rod would be a bit too fast for my liking.
