Brad, Got to hit the caddis a few times on the Ark but its been fishing better this past week than earlier. The caddis have moved above Salida and BWO's are coming out on cloudy days. The hatch is about to Browns Canyon, so you haven't missed it all. The roaring fork is really alive now. The mothers day caddis are in full swing if you get the chance to get over there.

My wife is an outdoors person and enjoys being outside doing anything. Luckily living where we do most of our friends fly fish, so she had to hear about it all the time. I eased into the fishing though. She would come on the float trips, so eventually she wanted try fishing. One of the keys was to get her a lesson from someone else and I wasn't there. After that she wanted a rod and now she is always along. It was easier to get her fishing than to get her bird hunting, but now she does it all.

I am mainly a trout fisherman. I take two trout trips a year( this past year was Arkansas, and Montana.)I do the saltwater thing usually after the middle of June, when the trout have gone deep.

I fish mostly trout,but since I had my fall. I seem to spend all of my time in front of this computer. Doc say not to do ant thing for at least 4 weeks. So when the 1st of June hits I will be out stream fishing. Boy, I sure hope I don't fall any more. Just can't stand the pain of not being able to go fishing.

I don't usually target trout but always enjoy it when I catch one. It's like an unexpected treat. I guess the main "problem" (for lack of a better term) is that I only seem to catch the cookie-cutter, run-of-the-mill stocked trout, not the big holdovers (or natives!). If I could catch trout like the ones shown above it would certainly change my perspective! I know, I know -- size isn't everything. Still, I just can't get too excited about trying to catch a 12" trout that was raised in a cement bathtub.

There is some pretty good trout fishing in my area. We even have a couple of lakes that are designated as "trophy brown trout waters" and have special regulations for browns. I should do some research and put in some time to try to catch one of the big ones.

I have spent 20 days on the Bow so far this year, plan to do another 80 between now and Dec.31. Being semi retire is sooo gooood!
Will fish the Crowsnest and the Elk soon and several local lakes for trout.
So, Stone, what do you & others think would be of interest in posts to the Trout Board?
Casting Techniques, eg. high stick nymphing? streamer techniques?
Leader selection for fly match?
Still water(lakes) Vs. moving water(river & stream) tips?
Since fly selection become a very regional, if not loca issue, I have not included this.
Building the archive of Trout fly patterns is one of my goals so let's get some more patterns +pics up there!

Hey FrenchCreek, I was looking to see some more communication from the trout hunters in general.
Technique, fly choice is nice, and building that fly database is a GREAT idea, working on it!

Just good ole' run of the mill fish stories also are nice when you have a good day!
Tight lines and sturdy knots,

Nice to hear a little more push on the cold water side of things. I do a lot of brookie fishing up this way. Also get a fair amount of L.L. salmon, brown and rainbow as well. I do a lot of striper fishing for variety as well. I live on the Kennebec which is a super fishery. If fished from one end to the other you can hit all of them.

Building the trout side of this site would be great and with more input we may be able to recruit more of the shops and guides for support. As it stands many of the shops I deal with aren't too enthusiastic because they see the hits directed toward the Steelies and stripers and don't see it as a good ad investment.

Perhaps if the trout board were moved to a higher position on the list it would help. While there are a lot of folks who fish the salt and P.N.W. I think that the greater numbers look to freestone streams for their fish.

I'll pose a request to Juro about maybe getting trout move up the board.

Keep it coming.
