Josh's reports

Josh C (bigerrfish) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing on the Uncompahgre River, Colorado
I fished lower on the river today and watched the water clear as the day went on. Gold stones are out and about and real thick this year. Caddis are begining to show their wiskers and the water is rich with black fly larva. Although most of the river is private, if you offer to mow the guys lawn over there by Catshead, he wont even make you do it but he will let you fish. Olny for a half day as long as: You fish smaller than size 18 flies, you dont use dries, ditch the indicator, grease the leader and you practace catch and release, and just as long as you leave only foot prints and take only pictures. The fish are big so tie a good knot. I fished three flies, and used the long line Euro method, T tied a midge larva pattern as the lead, anchored with a 18 stonefly nymph trailing behind 30 inches, a traditional rs2. All three species of trout were found, on all three flies. Fished just below the film with a greased 18 foot leader was the way to get numbers today. (04/12/11)

It's cold but the fish are still there. small flys will produce fish, but they have to be on the bottom. (12/16/09)
Josh C (bigerrfish) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing on the Uncompahgre River, Colorado
conditions have been slow the past few days due to single digit teperatures. this should change in the next few days due to snow fall that will bring the fish out to eat (12/06/09)

This is a high altitude mountain streem that wonders from the top of the Grand Mesa throuth the adobie badlands and falls in to the Gunnison in delta. You have to time this creek just right because the weather is so unpredictable It can go from a nice warm 55 degree day to freezing rain an 30 before you can run to the Atv where you still have to ride 5 miles to get to a truck.

Thanks for the comment Josh. My buddies first drift trip. He got that fish first thing on his spey rod swinging streamers. (4/30/11)
Brian Minich (minich83)
They were trico spinners. It looked like it was snowing in a lot of the early morning pics from that day (4/30/11)
Brian Minich (minich83)
you would have to be carefull. That fish had some teeth! (4/30/11)
Randy Browning (RandallT)
Your right, I do need a new name. The only problem is my bro's name is bowslayer, so bow hunter would be too close. I'll have to think about a good one. By the way. I want to hit up the Taylor River some time. I thinks thats out your way. If so, you'll have to put me on some fish colorado trout. (4/30/11)
Randy Browning (RandallT)
Nice one, I'll have to run it by my brother. Me and him are off to Alaska in 3 weeks for big bows, so that might just be the one. (4/30/11)
Cary Thayne (carythayne)
Thnks for the comments Josh. Are my sons ever addicts now! I have to take them at least once a week or they feel neglected hahaha. Just looking at your pics, way to hook em. Just got back from a second trip to montana with Jim Mitchell. Got to embrace the addiction, thats the first of 12 steps in the "FA" program. Step 12 is to fish as much as you can. Its the only cure. Save the money, dont worry about steps 2-11 and keep doing what your doing! (4/30/11)
Randy Browning (RandallT)
Picture wasn't that great, all I had was my cell phone camera. It's actually a straight Bonneville cutt. Thanks man. (4/30/11)
Brian Minich (minich83)
Thanks Josh. I haven't kept a trout since I was 8 years old. Any fish you see in any of the pictures I post was released as soon as the pic was taken. (4/30/11)

Matthew Patterson (mattyp)
right on josh. how's the fishin been? (4/30/11)
Matthew Patterson (mattyp)
First it was the rainbow then it was a week and a half of living out of a tent in Alaska. Shes definitely hooked now. She even goes to the MO with me in the winter and camps out in our tent. (4/30/11)
Matthew Patterson (mattyp)
The Mo's been good. Haven't been down there for about two weeks. I live about three hours away from it. I was great when I was there last. Planning a trip next weekend rain or shine. This weekend I'm just going to stick close to home and float the flathead. Cuts,Bulls, and Lakers on streamers. Lake Superior Whitefish have moved in from the lake. Theyre not much to look at but are fun to catch. (4/30/11)
Matthew Patterson (mattyp)
any fishing over the weekend? (4/30/11)
Matthew Patterson (mattyp)
yeah, spent a couple hours on the flathead. caught a few small cuts and some nice lake superior whitefish. caught a decent lake trout too. but it was pretty cold so we pulled anchor after a few hours. going to fish the swan where it dumps into flathead lake tomorrow. should be some lakers and bulls up eating pygmy whitefish. plus itss just a nice place to wade fish. (4/30/11)
Matthew Patterson (mattyp)
this one was just kind of luck. i was throwing a small green bugger for lake superior white fish and he just happened to nail it. when i target them i usually use a pattern that resembles a pygmy whitefish cause theyre spawning now too. im going to fish where the swan river dumps into flathead lake tomorrow. theres usually quite a few lakers, bulls, and pike that come in there and just getted stuffed on the little whitefish. (4/30/11)

Patrick Rosenow (Patrick38)
Hi everyone, I was seriously thinking about starting a Fishing guide service for Bureau County. I've called some places to get the information I need. I'd just like to know if anyone would be interested in this? Cause I dont wanna go thru the time and trouble of preparing papers and buying the things I need if I wont get any interested customers. Please let me know what you think and if you have any ideas. What I plan on doing (as soon as the snow is gone)is take pictures of all the area (public) Locks,Creeks and Ponds and add them to papers of info on what the stream is like,how deep, where its location is, what kinda of fish are in the area, etc. and take you wadding to the area you choose from the info papers I will make. I have flies I've made myself for sale in many different sizes,colors and styles. Days of the week, amount of hours and prices will be determined at a later time. <br> So If your an out of state/county fisherman and wanna try out Bureau County,Illinois waters please let me know. (4/30/11)
Patrick Rosenow (Patrick38)
I will have to try the popper.Ill have to get some heads.The horse fly is my new fav. im going to try that on some bows on April 3rd thats when they stock a local pond if you have any suggestions on some flies, i'll tie them up. (4/30/11)
James Seidle (Fly_Jim)
Yeah that crayfish has medium wire on the front 3/4 of the shank of the hook. (4/30/11)
Patrick Rosenow (Patrick38)
What do you think about the flies on the left side of my to go to fly box. (4/30/11)
Patrick Rosenow (Patrick38)
I went to where they plan on stocking the trout in the pond. I asked the guy what they are eating be for they come to the pond and he said trout food. What fly would you use if they have been eating trout food for how knows for how long need help if you got any info.Thanks! (4/30/11)
Wordson B. (wordson4prez)
Josh dont you worry... I am always making sure that safety comes first on the rivers! (4/30/11)
