Fly Fishing Colorado 5/21/15

It was a blustery old day up on the mountain yesterday but I decided to push on through and try my luck. There were intermittent snow showers, some that drove me back to the truck for a break but all in all not as bad as I thought it might be. 

The fish were slower to bite but still had a good time and actually kept some stocker rainbows for the skillet. I prefer to keep them if possible and let the Brook and Browns go back into the stream. 

Toward 5 pm I went over to Big Meadows and tried my luck with a Rapala but with no bites. Fish were surfacing some but i didnt have a clear bubble to faux fly fish with. 

I tried some power bait balls and after moving around a bit, was into the fish on every cast. All went back in the lake except for the final fish for my frying pan.
