So I'm back in Colorado for the summer, so here's a tr from the first couple weeks..lots of water, we're at 200% snowpack so all the rivers are huge and tough at te moment but they're coming down.

My brother drove out with me and fished some, we hit a big snowstorm just right to ruin some plans so we made the most of it by heading down south. Got into some piggies but fishing was tough, 2 feet of snow made for really cold water temps. We fished some still waters in belly boats, and a few rivers too. Enjoy!
