Fabulous Week of Fly Fishing and Camping with Family and Friends

What a fantastic week. We set up at Fish Lake. You have to book on line to camp there this year due to COVID-19. My kids, grandkids and friends came out joined us for a fun filled week. We fly fished a lot and hiked. Fish Lake is still fishing fantastic. We used chironomids, micro leeches and boatmen about 5 feet down with a lot of success. The rainbows are stockers and they sure were willing. We took our son-in-law and grandkids out on the lake. Great fun. We were also quite close to several fantastic cutthroat rivers. We chased cutthroat as well. Now that was fantastic. We celebrated birthdays, solved many world problems, and just stared at the evening fire. Nothing could be better than turning off reality for an entire week. My grandkids were the keepers of the fire. They took their job seriously!

We mostly nymphed while cutthroat fly fishing although we did see a BWO hatch and we rigged up dry flies and caught cutties with size 18 flies.

Still lots of camping and fly fishing out there before winter sets in!
