    Report 7/21/24

    Short and sweet this week as not much has changed fishing-wise in the area the last week. Flows are still high out of the Box Canyon and temperatures are quite warm with highs in the mid 80s all week. We are hoping for irrigation demand to decrease in the coming weeks, but no promises as…

    The Rail Road Ranch is open for business. Unfortunately, I do not have a substantial report.

A few brave souls ventured forward despite the wind and, upon return, had very little good to…

    Spring and fall have always been my favorite times of the year. Winter is fun in the beginning, but the excitement soon comes to an end. Summer is also fun, but the August heat gets old quickly. Spring is amazing around our area. Take a drive around, and you see new life everywhere… Newborn…

    Is spring upon us? Maybe. The white stuff falling out of the sky today says no, and the 28-degree temps in the morning say Spring is not here. However, Mother Nature has been very moody so far. Three Feet of snow one day and then temps up in the 50s the next day. The fishing…
