    Default Holiday in Colorado

    Got a family holiday / road trip in Colorado coming up in a couple of weeks. Hoping to fit in some fishing and had a few questions I hoped some knowledgeable folk could help with (I'll post on the US site as well but thought I'd try here first):
    • Thinking of trying the Arkansas River and South Platte - anyone know what water levels would be like this time of year?
    • Would you suggest a 9ft 5wt rod as a good general-purpose rod or take a dedicated 10ft 4" 3wt nymphing rod? Only have room for one
    • Would it be warm enough to wet wade or should i try to fit waders in?

    Many thanks
    Steve

    Somewhere I’ve always wanted to fish, the alpine lakes for cutthroat trout are fairly close to the top of my bucket list.

    Hi

    Like you, I was restricted with what I could carry. I did all my fishing over there with a 9' 5wt and wet wading, whilst at times a bit cold, was perfectly manageable. Of course, if you can fit your waders in a suitcase, take them, but it's not a big deal if you can't. All the best.

    John Gierach, Author of some of my favourite fishing books lives in Colorado, so it must be good.

    Have a great time
