April 3, 2013
Author: Will Rice

This rainbow trout was hooked in the Denver South Platte and taped at 19" - not too shabby for a city fish

One of the projects that we have all been working so hard for has finally started.  On March 25, The River Enhancement Project began in the section of the South Platte near the Carson Nature Center. This is the first of at least two projects that are designed to improve and enhance the metro section of the South Platte River.  Here are a few quick facts and highlights that cover the work that is being done...

Come take a boat ride with the Ross RX fly rod. First, we fished just off the coast of Nantucket for hard charging albies and then visited Guanaja, Honduras and stalked ultra spooky bonefish.  Two very different situations and fishing conditions – same 8 wt fly rod.

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.
