Video From The Colorado Back Country!

Awesome video. I was up in the Flattops a couple of summers ago. There is nothing like fishing for wild trout in that country.

Mic, your only option to fly into northwest CO would be at Hayden. But cost wise you are better to just go into Denver and drive the rest of the way. It's still 3+ hrs largely on windy mountain roads to the Flat Tops from Hayden despite being less than 50 miles as a crow flies. There is no remotely efficient way to get there from anywhere, so the fish don't see a whole lot of flies except in a few popular waters (like Trappers Lake.) It's somewhat more than 5 hrs from Denver depending on where in Flat Tops you go. I'd try the upper branches of the White River, both North and South Fork along with any number of tributary streams.......you probably won't be disappointed.

Thanks. I would love to take a SW flight to Denver, rent a car, and camp or find a cheap hotel... and then fish all day.

Maybe I should start a support group. Need a good name though.

...anywhere in the mountains is a great trip. I am not very familiar with the Rockies, but have fished the Sierras off and on for the majority of my life, very similar from what I've seen. Can't wait to retire there...4 MORE YEARS!!!!!!!

A strike indicator is just a bobber...

Cool video. Looks like a lot of fun.

If fishing was easy it would be called catching.
