Beer,
Thanks for the post. Looks like a great area and close to Rocky Mountain National Park too. I am a novice fly fisherman but experienced with spinners. Any advice on spinners or flies?

I have so advice for you. Put away those spinners and use rapalas. Big ones. Out there a average brown trout may be as big as 20 inches or better on some rivers. Browns this size will only chase a bait fish if there going to get more energy from eating it, then they've spent chasing it.

One other thing, keep in mind that many of the rivers out there do not allow the uses of certain lures, bait, or are fly fish only.

I allways take a good assortment of stone fly's, royale wolf and hopper patterns. I also have a few patterns that I have come up with, try some parachute paterns in black and elk hair brown. I tie some that look like an ordinary house fly that they really love. If your into fly fishing there is no greater feeling of accomplishment than to catch a fish on your own pattern. Remember to bring polarized glasses and a good pair of felt soled waders.(Slippery rocks)
If you have more quesions send me an email and I can attach some pictures that may help you.

Thanks again for the great advice. I picked up some waders with felt soles at Cabelas last Saturday and some Raps in brown trout pattern. Hope to get a chance to test the fly rod on the Straight River near Park Rapids on the week of the 4th.

Lucklyredhat I hope you weren't planning on fishing the hex hatch. Park Rapids got almost 4 inches of rain over the weekend with more rain expected last night and today. I'm crushed frown.gif because I was looking foward to fishing the hex hatch this year. Hopefully the river will be back to normal by the end of the week.

Had a great time on the Cache le Poudre last week. Caught my first wild trout on a dry fly (mesquito pattern) and learned how to fish nymphs successfully. Thanks for the tip on the river. It is an incredibly beautiful area that holds a great variety of wildlife.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
