It’s fall dudes. Actually, fall is almost half over. It feels weird, like the opposite of Deja Vu; “How are we here now? shouldn’t it still be summer?” Because of that, we have something important to tell you. It will probably be the most important thing you will read today. Why? Well, it could very well affect how you behave today and tomorrow. This could very well derail your immediate future decisions.
You ready for it?
Ok, here it is…
It’s almost November…
So you are probably now thinking “no duh captain obvious, how is that important at all?” Well, because these things that are barely hanging on, namely REALLY GOOD FALL FISHING and SUNNY WARM DAYS are almost a memory. Think about that! Did you fish enough this fall to say to yourself: “self, I am really content with the fishing I did this fall”? I know I didn’t! There are only a few amazing, sunny, and warm days left! Maybe even only this weekend! It’s supposed to rain next Tuesday! It could turn to snow! The Front Range is already getting the white stuff!!!! It’s over man, OVER!!!!
That may sound a little “alarmist”, maybe even overly “dramatic”…but consider that really, these are the days of your life. Maybe you should text a buddy right now and make a plan for the weekend. The Animas has been fishing damn good and the fishable midge hatches are starting to show on the San Juan. There are even a few good days left for pike and trout fishing on our local lakes. It’s time to send the warm October sun off in style…namely with legit brown trout on streamers.
Make a plan of it and swing by the shop or check out our newly updated River Reports page. Very soon, when the snows are howling and winds are ripping, you will be glad you did.
