RMNP Fly Fishing Trip

Recommended Posts

On June 29th my friend Jim and our sons went on a back packing trip in the Rocky Mountain National Park. We hiked in 6.1 miles and set up camp for a 3 day, two night stay. The hike only had a 510 feet elevation change but at over 10K feet high and near 50 pound packs us flat-landers were feeling it!



The above picture is the start of the Poudre river that we used for our water and food supply. The weather was unexpectedly cold at night with temps dropping below freezing. The brook trout didn't seem to mind the cooler temps and we caught a bunch with our dry flies. Below is my sons first brookie and our dinner for last Saturday evening.




The remote area was full of wildlife. Nothing like fishing with a bull moose 50 yards away.





It was my first back country over night trip and we all had a blast!

It sure was Tim. While the larger National parks get more attention - the RMNP has some spectacular views and remote areas to explore. The wildlife is pretty amazing as well.
