Re: Back into the Mountains

This is another FOASTWRN I've been eyeing this creek for about 5 years. One thing or another prevented me from attempting to fish this creek. It's another long drive down many miles of forest roads before reaching the trailhead. The water I want to fish is several miles up that trail. In fact the ac...

Re: Back into the Mountains

FOASTWRN Yes, this is my favorite creek up here..... In all the years I have fished up in Pagosa, I missed this creek but one time, and that was to fish the East Fork Ranch with Joe. This was truly the first creek to hit my FOASTWRN status in the area! So I would leave early to make the long trip do...

Re: Back into the Mountains

Into the Burn Zone..... Back in 2015 Pagosa Springs and the Weminuche Wilderness had one of the worst fires this area has seen in decades. The fires lasted all summer and were not totally put out until the snows started falling. Over 100,000 acres burned and that burn area encompassed some FOASTWRN ...

Re: Back into the Mountains

The Sure Thing I am going ahead and start this one..... So first day in Pagosa and rain is predicted starting about 3pm. And this forecast was for all the mountains east, north or west. So I need 2 things; a location with a fast exit strategy and Cutthroats. After thinking about it I decided on goin...

Re: Back into the Mountains

Day 2 It's not Easy I was up early to pack up and check out of the hotel. Today I would fish another creek, this one further north and draining into the Rio Grande itself. This one too promised to hold Cutthroats, these pure Rio Grandes. Again going on the advice of friends who fish northern New Mex...

Re: Back into the Mountains

Back into the Mountains

It's time of year again. Last summer left me with a bunch of questions about sport versus health. I had to leave early because my medications left me prone to altitude sickness. Seeing how I live for my days chasing wild Trout, I was in denial, and kept saying it would get better,... just for anothe...

Re: River Cleanup July 8th - Call for volunteers

Here's a little of today's work on the river. I was a little worried about today's turnout, until I talked to Mark who said he had about 40+ respond to the e-mail blast. http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee95/jimboroberts/2016/2017/IMGP2075_zpsvmieezf1.jpg I arrived about 8:50am and we were already...

Re: We need Rain !

It's all about cold water and how far downstream the flows will push it before the air temperatures warm it up. So first it's about how cold the water is to begin with. This season the water temperatures of the releases are about 60 degrees, most seasons will would see mid-50's, but that takes sever...

Re: We need Rain !

I wish Cindy would move west and get us the rain we need, but it's not looking good. The best chance for rain is Saturday and Sunday and not related to the hurricane. And I hate to say it, but reaching pool this late in June is probably not going to happen. We were real close but the lake is droppin...

Re: Terrible news - Zebra Mussels discovered in Canyon Lake

When I heard they were in Texoma years ago, I said to myself they're eventually going to be in every lake. What's worse is there is no known treatment that can combat them other than physical removal. I wonder how long before they start showing up in the river below Canyon Lake and what is that goin...

Re: We need Rain !

The upper basin on the Guadalupe is everything above Canyon Lake. So when it rains in the upper basin all that runoff has to go into Canyon Lake. And we missed significant rains in the upper basin again. The river up there is really starting to drop. It's not looking good for the lake to get to pool...
