Colorado July Getaway

Took a trip out west to Vail, CO to find some cooler weather, fish and just hangout and relax. Had such a great time exploring this area. 

Did quite a bit of fishing on Gore Creek, Homesteak Creek and Eagle River. Caught lots of Browns.  Used Minturn Anglers guide service and had guide Mandy Hertzfeld show me around. She did such a great job showing me how to dry fly fish.

We did a white water rafting trip on the Colorado River through class 3+ rapids, so exhilarating. Service was provided by Nova Guides. http://novaguides.com

Can’t wait to get back to this area and explore some more. 

Stay Trout Tough!
