- August 14: Phantom Canyon River Trail Maintenance and Fishing Day:
Rocky Mountain Flycasters/Trout Unlimited River Trail Leaders will work with a team of volunteers to mow vegetation in the trail, trim back trail-side vegetation, and rebuild rock cairns marking safe river crossings. Afterward, volunteers will be able to do some catch-and-release fishing in the canyon.
See the Phantom Canyon Page for more details and volunteer signup contacts. Backup in case of unsuitable conditions will be 28 August.
Note of the Day:
...[bridge pools are] often overlooked by fly fishers because these places are fished by everyone, especially bait fishers who usually remove the largest trout from a river. However, invariably, pools under bridges harbor a couple of monster brown trout who are canny enough to survive seasonal barrages of worms, spinners, and flies. source unknown
