Eventually I determined to fish the Cheesemen Canyon stretch of the South Platte, among one of the most popular streams in CO. It was a Tuesday, there was a 45 minute trip to the river, and it was a wonderful combo of rain/sleet/snow. Certainly this would be my possibility to have some alone time with the stream. Nope.
When I occupied fly angling, the strategy to angling rivers merely appeared to make good sense to me, despite never having actually fished a stream. One of the advantages of fly angling that I have actually found is that I obtain to spend much of my time on rivers instead of lakes. With rivers, I could take a look at the surface as well as surmise just what is going on with the framework of the river bottoms. When you integrate that with basic understanding of the behaviors of trout it's quite simple to determine where they hold however catching them is one more tale. On the other hand, in a lake, the fish could possibly be anywhere. The whole lake is their safe house.
