Trip Report - Float Fishing the Colorado River

July 11, 2014
Author: Tucker Ladd

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.

Durango July Fishing Report

June has come and gone and with it, a month of unreal fishing has passed.  Not to worry, July is the high point of our summer fishing season and it continues to be great in our small slice of fishing heaven.  As we wind down our Rio Grande float season and our guides head back over the hill towards Durango; we anticipate another fantastic month of great fly fishing.  Just to recap; John, Tom, and the boys spent the better part of June over in Creede, Colorado floating anglers down the Rio Grande River.  Thanks to the snow pack and temps this spring; the water flows remained constant, the bug hatches were unreal, and fishing was truly lights out for weeks on end.  Just check out this video John took of the Salmonfly hatch:
