I took a slight detour/adventure trip last weekend while camping at Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming. I drove about 1.5 hrs West of our camp spot to the top of the Snowy Range pass, to go fish a little alpine lake I remember from a day-trip with my wife Katherine back in the fall of 1996 or 1997.
Nestled near the top of the Snowy Range Pass, just west of Laramie Wyoming, sits these lakes and the picture below is of Lake Marie. Wow. What a scene! Fishing was pretty good too, catching Rainbows and Brookies on a Parachute BWO.

Here is another iPhone photo from my first trip in to fly fish the Yampa River near Steamboat Springs, Colorado this past October. This section of the Yampa is the tailwaters coming out of Stagecoach Reservoir. Beautiful this time of the year with quiet, clear water flows with lots of LARGE Rainbow trout just sipping dry flies. I caught one Rainbow that morning and “missed” several others in the few hours I spent on the river.
This river is my new favorite river in Colorado.
