: Where to go?

07-03-2008, 11:16 PM
Ok so my wife is heading back to Mass for a week in the Cape, leaving Thursday 7/17 and returning Sunday 7/27. So guess what I'm going to be doing those weekends when she's gone? :D

Here's the choices I'm currently looking at:
1. Closer rivers like the South Platte, Colorado, Blue, etc within 2-3 hours of Denver.
2. Southern CO - Gunnison and other rivers in that area.
3. Wyoming
4. Montana

Since I have two weekends, I can realisitically do two of these, but I'm not going to want to do long drives on both weekends so basically I'm looking at # 1 and one of the others.

Also, anybody interested in joining me? Either local or from farther afield? If anybody was really a crazy fisherman like me and wanted to fly into Denver, I'd be willing to pick you up and pay for gas for the weekend. I can make a 3 day weekend out of it either weekend and I have a tent so I'd figure on making it a camping trip. Just throwing that out there. :)

From what I've heard recently from someone who is just returning, the South Platte has been very slow in the canyon, and the salmonfly hatch on the Rio Grande has been real good.

Good luck and great fishing where ever you go!
