Trip Report | Yampa River, 1-15-11

January 19, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

Me and an old friend ventured to fish the Yampa River below Stagecoach Reservoir last weekend.  Don’t normally venture to this particular tailwater due to the crowds in the Summer months, but the Winter can be an ideal time to be there.  All in all a great day with plenty of fish to hand.  We fished dry flies exclusively until around 1pm, then switched it up to nymphs with amazing success.  Here are some of the better photos from the day, enjoy!

It was an overcast day, but it was dead calm out... perfect dry fly weather

First fish to hand for the day. A size 22 Parachute Adams did the trick

Another on the line. We were having success with dries as large as size 16 to as small as size 24

It's no slab, but he'll take it!

In the afternoon, the fish stopped looking up to the surface, but there were plenty of fish to be had subsurface.

Another dandy fish. Their colors were absolutely magnificent!

My biggest of the day

In closing, I leave you with the "oh S@&%" photo of the day
