Fly Fishing Report 6-30-12 by Wallace Westfeldt 

Okay I’ll admit it:  I was concerned about the heat at Mother Lake. So, I talked my guest into going very early … well, we were fishing by 7:15. Early morning action was all on midges.

Dry Dropper rig with a Chernobyl on top and #20 UV midge did the trick. When the midges died down, switched to a lime green Damsel nymph. Definitely the fly of the day … all day. We were fortunate to get afternoon cloud cover so fish continued to take into the mid afternoon. Highest water temp one foot down was 68 degrees. Not bad for this weather. Springs are running well. Also caught fish on Orange Blossom Special and Callibaetis nymph.

Did see some Callibaetis spinners, but not too many takes on those. Trick of the day was Loch Style Rig from a Belly Boat. Don’t know what that is? Send me a note and I’ll tell you … or better yet let’s set a date and I’ll show you!  ~ Wallace, MudBugCo, Fish Acquisitions ~ More Pictures Here

Firefighters have been taking the heat for a while now and they were rewarded Sunday by achieving full-containment of the High Park fire. We say a big “CONGRATULATIONS!” and express deep gratitude to all fire workers involved. And we know there’s still work to be done.

The High Park Fire is 100% contained at 87,284 acres. A Type 3 management team, led by Ken Paul, assumed responsibility for the fire yesterday. That team is based at CSU’s Pingree Park campus.

It should be noted that “containment” means that a containment line exists around the fire, which fire managers believe will hold the fire within the perimeter. “Control” means that the fire is actually out which, on a fire of this magnitude, typically requires an act of nature such as prolonged rain or snowfall.
