PSA Keep Skateboarding....

Somewhat of a local disappointment at winter so far, and I am skateboarding this week a few times for sure. Some people skate in the offseason.....I want to move to AK.

I don't skateboard, so I'm just marinating in butthurt.

May have to break out the fishing gear again. I wonder how the Blue and South Platte tailwaters are fishing about now?

The tailwaters can fish all year.

Plus, you can ice fish if you want. No thanks.

no saltwater, no steelhead.

no trout can hold a candle to a steelhead... i have thousands of dollars worth of trout fly-fishing gear that just sits now.. i pretty much won't even guide trout anymore


i'd take one steelhead every other day on the water (we usually do way better than that) over 10-20 fish trout fishin days.

my biggest steel so far is about 17lbs - have landed 30+ lb. chinook on barbless flies swinging for steelhead

You would probably be surprised by the steelhead runs off the great lakes, but we cant fish winters though.

personally i'll take lake trout over steelhead.

Honestly, the most enjoyable fishing I've ever had was back when I lived in western NC, backpacking into tiny mountain streams fishing for brook trout where a 10" was a lunker.

I really need to find some more remote stream fishing opportunities here in CO. That was what I loved the most about that type of fishing - the remoteness and isolation. There's plenty of that here in CO with alpine lakes, but I haven't had much luck in terms of streams. Fuck lake fishing. That shit is boring as hell.

i am stoked you guys have those to fish for, but if it doesn't go live in the ocean for a while i don't really consider it a steelhead. that said i've never gone after the GL fish.

we have a fair bit of that stuff out here but after guiding it for a few years, and once i was really getting into bigger fish - its just gets boring to me... and i looooove dry fly fishing too....

The problem I have with going after the big ones is that for the most part they're in the trophy waters and those waters are PACKED.

I'll hit up the South Platte a few times a year, during the week, and I'll always pull in a couple of 18-24"ers while I'm down there, as long as the flows aren't too low. But, I just can't deal with the crowds. I fish to get away from that shit.

This coming summer, I really have to do some digging and see if I can't find some decent remote stream fishing in CO. I haven't found anything within a couple of hours, that's for sure.
