Love the thread. Boulder, CO here but fish mostly mountains - Frying Pan and Roaring Fork are my choice when I can get the time.

WeBeCinYa - Let's connect some time on the South Platte (noce pix). I too have an arles blue 94. Just purchased it about 4 months ago. A local friend owned it many years ago so I was familiar with its history. It's now back home in Colorado!

I'll be fishing 11 Mile this Friday if anyone is interested in getting out.

Fished the Blue River below the dam in Silverthorne for a while this morning, and, damn. Many fish in the 16-20" range. I just had my little 3wt in the car with me so it made for some fun fishing.

Browns on the Provo

Our daughter and her husband just moved up to SLC. We did some exploring on a beautiful day this March...found a "stream"... The Provo....set up the 3wt Sage and hooked up with Brownies on the first few casts.

For this California Boy...Utah has alot to offer. Beautiful mountains up north...epic overloading in the south and...surprisingly...some good rivers.

Montana next!

That sounds like quite a lot of fun. I'm going to visit my father in law on the Atlantic side of south Florida a week from today. He lives on the intracoatal in Boca Raton, and my skiff is down there, ready to go. I'm going to get into a few snook, tarpon, and who knows what else on the 10-11wts. It's a blast.

You live in a beautiful place Skeena.

I'll do it. I'm coming up to your vicinity on a trip with a customer of mine in early July. We're coming to Vancouver to fish for Silvers and Halibut. Not my kind of fishing (boats and bait) but will be fun, nevertheless. I'm more for moving water, and a fly rod. We went to Cordova, AK last year and fished the Tsiu river for silvers, which was fun.... But to be honest, there were too many fish. A challenge is what interests me, and what you're doing is my speed. When everyone goes to sleep at night in south Florida, I venture out and hit the intracoastal bridges and lighted seawalls. Man.. The snook are crazy. They're very picky, and deaddrifting a fly on an outgoing tide is key. I can always spot the snook in the lights, and at certain times of the year, the tarpon are just waiting in the shadow lines.

Great fun.

I'll post pics....

On the fly: The tarpon and snook. Caught 3 tarpon one night, the largest around 50lbs. Sorry for the poor pictures, it was 10pm and I was alone. One tarpon blew up my 12wt, and the others were landed on my 10wt. I will admit.... On an incoming tide with help from a really strong current, those tarpon kicked my tail.

The blackfin tuna wouldn't come up from the depths enough for a fly, so I started throwing a spinning rod with a rapala diving 20'+. The tuna nailed it, got close to my boat and then took off like it was shot out of a cannon. I look down (in 150' of water) and about 10' below my boat is swimming a 9-10' Tiger shark going after the tuna. After a serious 15 minute fight, the shark won......

Thanks Craig.

Yeah. I have a 17' Carolina skiff (JV-17) that I keep at my father in law's in Boca Raton. He lives on the intracoastal, and that's where most of my snook and tarpon come from, at night. During the day, I'll take my skiff out of the inlet into the big water, seas permitting. I was about a mile offshore, in 150-175' of water when I hooked the tuna. I was chumming the water, trying to get them to come up enough for a fly. They weren't coming up quite enough this time (according to my radar), so I threw a diving rapala at them. That guy still made some nice sashimi. I even had a couple of slices while out in the boat!

I've taken my boat out to 450' of water before during calm seas. I keep an eye on my iPhone radar, pay attention to the ocean forecast, tides, etc. I also have the SeaTow app on my phone. I run up to West Palm, and down to Ft. Lauderdale often, from Boca. It's a great little boat.
