I wish I had more time (and money) to go, too. If I want to go for a short day
without driving so far, I'll go this little place called Waterton Canyon which is just
in the foothills. It's a nice bike ride and some fun fishing for little trout.
For longer days off, I'll drive to Spinny Mountain Reservoir, which isn't pretty, but
I've caught some big rainbows outta there, too.
My favorite, though, is the Frying Pan river near inbetween Aspen and Glenwood
Springs...I caught my first fish there!
One of the reasons I don't fish as much as I used to three years ago, is, well,
I broke up with the guy that introduced me to fly fishing.
Oh, I forgot, one last very nice place, is the San Juan river in New Mexico...I
had a blast at that river...I've never caught 8 fish in one day before that big!
