Dan’s Tip

The hills are alive with the flaming yellow, orange, and red of Aspen trees. New every year even if you have seen it every year before.

The hills are alive with the flaming yellow, orange, and red of Aspen trees. New every year even if you have seen it every year before.

Summer has suddenly given away to fall.  The water continues to flow at low ebb and to grow cooler as the night temperatures drop.  The roads, trails, and byways are alive with sight seers and color seekers who have not been disappointed.  The high mountain trees are beginning to drop leaves, but the mixture of Aspen and changing shrubs has given the hills a magnificent flair of beauty enough to satisfy the most ardent seeker. The lower Cottonwoods are beginning to change and will reach full color in short days to come. Hurry if you haven’t taken your drive through the color byways!

 

Current Fishing and Weather Conditions

Our very hot summer has suddenly given way to bright and sunny days of cooler temperatures and brilliant colors. The general word coming in from the streams is that the fish are generally small with a large trout being sighted occasionally, but deep holes are not plentiful and the “big guys” have become very suspicious of any thing they see trailing the water. We expect that first September frost any night now.  It has already come at higher elevations.

The mountain side roads are always lovely, but in the Autumn they tend more to the spectacular.
