Back Country Fly Fishing
« on: March 01, 2015, 04:06:41 PM »
New to this forum. My wife and I are just starting to plan our biannual trip to CO. This year we are planning a backpacking/ fly fishing trip. I have done a little investigation so far and have been looking at the Rawah Wilderness but is further north than we were planning to go. There is an approx. 25 mile loop that hits several small lakes along the way that looks fun. We would rather find a route closer to Idaho Springs area. Looking for a 25-30 mile trip along a stream that might include some small alpine lakes. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks, Jim

Idaho Springs is the front range gateway so anything around there is going to be much busier. If you have the time to do a 25 mile backpack, I'd make the time to do the drive to some place a little farther from the front range.

What time of year?

Head west to the Flattops.  Better fishing than the Rawahs also-

We are planning to come out around the fourth of July weekend. I will investigate the flat tops. Thanks for the suggestions.
