Reported by Ben McGee, Manager of Guide Services for Front Range Anglers
Tim and his son Ethan booked two consecutive days with FRA while they were in town. They opted for an evening trip on Boulder Creek with FRA Guide Randy Hanner, and a full day on the Big Thompson with FRA Guide Wallace Westfeldt.
Boulder Creek fished great for Tim and Ethan, using ‘dry-dropper rig’ with a Chubby Chernobyl and Rainbow Warrior:
The next day started on private water using the standard Big T nymph rig (Rubber Leg, Blue Tung, and Sowbug.) Fishing was steady all morning. After lunch, switched to Dry Droppers with PMX on top and various droppers underneath focusing on pocket water and riffles. Results remained the same with numerous fish brought to the net . Later in the day, switched to public water with both standard nymph rig and dry dropper, picking up fish in various sections.
You know, it doesn’t get much better than taking a son or daughter on a trip like this …… memories that last a lifetime.
