My Cherry Creek odyssey

Ordinarily, I don't write precise directions to a good fishing spot. Under most circumstances, revealing a great fishing hole in print will inundate it with so many anglers that the fishing will be ruined.

Tactics for high water

Due to the extremely wet winter we had, most of the streams are running cold fast and extremely full. The recent hot spell has begun to melt the huge snowpack with a vengeance and the rivers are boiling.

Recording stream conditions, weather patterns, and flies, lures, baits and techniques used can help improve your fishing. Jotting down unusual wildlife you spot, or interesting rock and mineral formations, notes on mining ruins, or Indian artifacts can help increase your enjoyment of your outdoor excursions.
