  2. Chris, I loved this piece. It might be the best piece of your writing I’ve read and certainly one of the best articles I’ve read on Colorado back country fly fishing. I really appreciated the quality of the prose, the history of the area, and the environmental concerns we should be aware of. And the photography and fish were terrific. Well done. I was out in sw CO in late June and early July but at that point it didn’t look like the waters were ever going to come back down. I tried south park but just too much water, so I bugged out. Good to see that Treasure Creek had so much water in late July, though, but increased flows must have made it more challenging wading for you, too. So different from 2018 and earlier. I’ll take the snowpack, and it looks like we’re on target for another 2019 summer in 2020.

  3. Hello Chris,I really enjoyed this article.I’m definetly going to make the trip to fish this gem.Much like the pure genetic Golden trout of the Kern river system the Rio Grande Cutt is on my ” To catch list ” .Your article has inspired me to make it happen this summer.

    I read your other articles as well and enjoyed the flavor of your writing.Great info to as I have fished both Grape Creek and Beaver Creek.I recently purchased a second home in Canon and hope to leave Ohio soon or divide my time between the two.

    Please continue with writing and fly fishing !
