Kokanee

The fishing was a little slow the first few days on the Arkansas River, we did manage some brown trout using hopper dropper, but most of the fish came swinging wet flies.  With temperatures in the low 90's we only fished the morning and evenings.

After that, we moved over to the Gunnison River.  First stop was at the fly shop, and they said: "We have never seen so many kokanee salmon in the river."

These fish are crazy hot when you hook them.  Making quick runs and head over tail jumps.

We limited out today.  The fishing had been good.

By the looks of the dry jeans in that last pic, it would seem Bill cut out early. Leaker.
