    Nice stream. Caught 12 or so trout in about 5 hours. All of them were browns in the 10-12 inch range with 2 at about 14-15inches. All fish hit small hoppers (green body). Fish were in good form and most hit the hoppers hard. Cattle are friendly but very inquisitive!

    Fished this beautiful little stream in late August and it did not disappoint. Decent size browns for this stretch of water in the 7 to 12 inch range. Had luck early with dry droppers on emergers and mainly all top water action later in the late morning. Fished caddis and mayflies mainly. Will definitely be back booking with rarewaters and exploring some nice new stretches of water they have to offer. Customer service is top notch!

    Took a buddy out of state to experience this beautiful stretch of water for dry fly fishing. We had good success with hoppers and eager browns. Fish were very spooky and like their cutbanks. Best time of year to fish would be fall to late fall.

    Nice stretch of water. Good pools at the cuts plus nice cover under the banks. Fished with elk hair caddis and hoppers. Got a lot of aggressive hits and caught about 10 browns in a couple of hours. Nice views of the 14’ers and no one within sight.

    Beautiful stream. Reminds me of Montana spring creeks. Caught about a dozen browns, mostly hiding under the cutbanks. Most were in the 7″-10″ range – but lost two much larger fish hiding in the deep pools. That will teach me to try to horse them up. Water was a bit low, but not too bad. Still nice and cold and the fish were super active. Great views and easy access to the water here. Flat ground a few willows to snag. Not another soul in sight! All within an hour of Denver. Be aware this is an active cattle operation – though the highland cattle (see pic) could not be more friendly. I did not camp here, though you can. There is a ton of free camping nearby in the national forest off of Rock Creek Hills Road.
