So many Fish!

Recommended Posts

This was one of the most fun trips I've had in a long time. Such a wide range of fish species to catch! From Salmon running up stream, to brown and rainbow trout. I got to fish a lake, and also the Dolores river. I also was able to stay in a really nice campground which was very reasonably priced for the accommodations. The cabin was rustic, but nice. Much better than in a tent, and the river was very close (walking distance).

Before we got to check into the Dolores river campground http://doloresrivercampground.com we decided to go back to those little lakes where I caught a 27" brown. While we didnt get any really large fish, we did have some great luck fishing for rainbow's. Jeff caught a few on a streamer, I caught a few on a dry fly. So they were ready and willing to take anything we threw at them.
After we got back to the campground and grabbed a bite to eat, we decided to hit up the Dolores River. This is the free flowing section of the river that dumps into the McPhee Dam. Its not the tailwater. This stretch of river holds massive amounts of rainbow and brown trout, and I have seen some good sizes pulled out of there. However, during this time of year, the Kokanee salmon start making their way up the river to spawn, and we were in them so thick we could not catch any trout. But they were fun to catch! However we wanted some trout so we decided to make our way up river to find areas without salmon, and hopefully catch some trout. I did get a nice brown the first day. But stay tuned and our 2nd day fishing I was able to pull in some really nice rainbow and brown trout, same with Jeff. We really caught more than our fair share of fish!
