Fished Cheesman Canyon by myself this afternoon, to try to get some confidence after a severe skunking on the blue in Silverthorne the day before. We went to the blue hoping the high flows had pushed some of the larger fish from under the dam down into the first mile of public water. We didn't see any of these fish, dealt with heavy snow, bitter temperatures and high flows. Its almost JUNE!!
25'' bow landed in cheesman today
Cheesman was great with the fish having no problem chasing attractors, caddis pupa, and baetis nymphs.
About a month ago I lost a 26"+ fish down near wigwam club, and today I got revenge. Not the same fish but the fished taped in at 25" and 7 lbs. with a ridiculous battle on 4x
The big girl took this orange scud
This would have been a good photo, but the camera was more interested in the twig
The hen was definitely post-spawn, and was somewhat skinny for 25'', but put up a hell of fight
Best I could do with a self-photo camera timer shot.
