The Forgotten Canyon

The day started with a meet up amongst friends along Hwy 285. We made our way to the trail head, and started hiking down into the canyon. I’m amazed every time I fish this canyon by the lack of fisherman, and evidence of fisherman. It really is an awesome place for being so close to Denver.

Blue skies overhead accompanied us all day, and the views in the canyon were spectacular. The fishing was quick, and I caught little fish. Size 20 rainbow warriors was the food of choice for the little browns I caught. 

The big fish of the day was caught by Bob, and it measured 19’’. I saw allot more big rainbows over 20’’ this time then I did last time. I want to get back there soon! I finally put a fish in the first hoop I ever sewed a bag on to. It was not a monster, but certainly a special fish.

I looked at that first hoop while sitting river side, and realized I have come a long way since I bent that hoop. Overall it was a goods day to be in "forgotten canyon".
