Fishing Journal: 20090807: Boulder Creek

In the Canyon, about 10.5 mi. from the Canyon/Broadway intersection. Maybe two hours. Elk Hair Caddis on top with various nymphs down below.

Started slow in some likely-looking water. Thought it was gonna be a dead day. Then started pulling out lots of fishing. Mostly tiny-to-small cutthroats, like this fella:

They fight pretty nicely. Deep salmon/red coloring inside the gills and along the bottom.

Anyway, probably ended up with ten fish in 2 hours, and had a pretty nice time. Still having a hard time finding water that rivals my home water. And still (and increasingly) pondering what skill differences drive catching the little ones vs. the big ones.
