With Baby Ladd due to makes it's grand debut in roughly 4 weeks, the wife and I decided to head to the High Country for a couple days of float fishing on the Colorado River. Flows were on the fall from roughly 3,000 cfs to around 2,500 cfs, with a majority of the drop coming from decreased releases from Green Mountain and Williams Fork Reservoirs. The water was clear, the bugs were popping all day, and the trout were as happy and healthy as I've seen in years. It's apparent that the last couple years of good flows have produced a healthy and vibrant trout population on our states namesake river.
