Fishing the Taylor River, Colorado Dates: April 13-16, 2021 Fly Fishermen: Joe Nicklo (leader, sage, and experienced fisherman), John Scarcelli (experienced, patient trout fisherman), Steve Edwards (has done a lot to trout fishing, but mostly with a guide), and Paul Robertson (the rookie at trout fishing). We began planning this trip back in February, when we were able to take advantage of some $98 round trip tickets to Denver, CO, on Southwest Airlines. And we also all realized that we would all be Covid-19 vaccinated by then.

Our trip has been compromised by the weather. High tides left no beach available on Wednesday, with the water all the way to the dunes. There will be locally heavy rain, accompanied with lightning, the entire weekend. In the interest of safety, the trip is cancelled.
We will meet up at 06:45am at the Hwy 361 launch site. Brown & Root flats is a shallow bay of a few thousand acres with water depths of 6” to 2.5 ft when we will be there. Clear water and sight casting are regular here. This, combined with the grassy and sandy bottom keeps the water clear and should allow you the opportunity to sight cast to fish. The numerous spoil islands and some pipelines should provide ample opportunity to explore the area and enjoy a peaceful day of fishing. Be sure and keep your eyes along the prop scars, the fish like to sneak along these. Wade fishing in general has good bottom. If you’re in mud, move out and you will find firmer wading. Google Earth or maps show good details and can help map out a secret strategy
The weather didn't cooperate, again, but there were almost 40 people, mostly families, that made the event, in spite of the weather. A lot of fish were caught, but the bite was slow. I don't think anybody was skunked. Quite a few first-timers came out to see what it was all about. Winner of the Event? : Picture below
