  • November 1: Cheesman Canyon/South Platte
    This is a state treasure, and a beautiful stream in a beautiful canyon. The rainbows there aren’t too bad either, if you can catch them. Known for being one of the most technical yet rewarding tailwaters in Colorado, this is one for the bucket list. Keep that light-weight tippet at home because there are some monster rainbows in the canyon.Plan on nymphing with small stuff - size 20 and smaller. Could also be a good time to get lucky with a nice Blue Wing Olive hatch. Host: Mark Miller

    This year they are excited to present their new book Modern Terrestrials, which is already receiving very positive reviews.

The Fort Collins Senior Center is located at 1200 Raintree Drive off Shields Avenue between Prospect and Drake. Additional meeting information.

Note of the Day:

When steelhead travel in the open ocean, feeding on squid, fish and small crustaceans, they follow surface temperatures of about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Thus, Alaskan steelhead are found only in rivers in the southern third of the state, because ocean temperatures off northern Alaska are too cold for these sea-run rainbows. source unknown
