OUTTA HERE! a released trout rockets into the depths.
we took a quick couple of days to zip the two hours up to Lee's Ferry on the Colorado river for some boating, fishing and camping. we hit it just right as it was freezing & windy before we left and we came home to snow. it was a great re-charge to soak up some sun between the vermilion cliffs and pull some gorgeous trout from the crystal clear waters.
here's a sense of scale - that's Jeff in the lower right hand corner on the shore.
a beauty trout! the trout were really getting great color for the spawn coming up. we also caught allot of feisty, hard charging trout in the 10" range from last year's spawn. i'd say the fishing is really gonna rock in the next couple years!
Barry with a healthy 12-ish incher.
Jeff having a terrible time........
dappled patterns on an overhang from the sun on the water.
