Default RMNP family trip. Got a bit of fishing in

We got to head out west on vacation and we camped out at the Rocky Mountain National Park for a couple of nights. We had gorgeous weather except the wind. It was a family trip so I didn't get a whole lot of time to fish but I did manage about 4 hrs on the water over 3 days.

Some of you probably saw these pix I posted on Instagram already so I apologize for the redundance.




First day we hit up a little lake which is a very popular fishing and tourist area and ended up landing 2 Brookies.




Next day we had an opportunity to hike up to one of the alpine lakes that holds the Greenback cutthroat. I spent over an hour stalking and sight fishing and ended up with 2 to net.



The following day I was able to fish the Big T near the campground and the river was amazingly productive. Browns were rising to my dry fly on these beautiful runs and I would've stayed for days just in that river if it wasn't for my family waiting on me.



I tried a whole bunch of flies including some terrestrials but the most productive was my north georgia go-to fly... 14 EHC.

What a beautiful place. I can't wait until my next trip out there.

Spectacular report and images ! I fished the Big T a few times and it is an amazing river in so many ways. I actually recognized that stretch of water in your photo. And, I totally understand you not wanting to leave so soon..

Thanks. Yeah it is where a paved road becomes a dirt road and dead ends at a trailhead. I'm sure you know where it is. The water was crystal clear and cold. What a beautiful place to be...

Nice trip and report. More water I neeed to get to.
There's so much trout water in the west, and so little time, there's always a tension between exploring other waters and settling into the fishing at hand, or revisiting favorites. Luckily, it's all good.

Great report. Can't wait to get out there later this year. I will just miss the amazing dry fly action the state is having right now.
