A pinch of color…

Yesterday I found a small copse of Aspen with the start of Fall color. Had our first frost last night as well. I think we are on a roll again! The water temps will be in the green zone for fishing all day. Now, it’s a race to fish Hoppers till they’re gone…when will that be? We rocked them till November last year…a personal best for me. Depends on when we get a hard frost, and that is different every year. With a little cooler temps you could swing a Caddis in the evening for a change of pace. Clouds could encourage a Baetis hatch so keep an eye peeled. I saw my first October Caddis last evening….. It was beautiful yesterday morning, then the Dutch Flat fire made it pretty bad up here. Nice right now, mornings are still best for breathing/fishing. 69cfs in town….too low to guide….but down in the canyon looks good @492cfs. Streamer season is now in session. Break out your big stick. Let the games begin!
