First Fork Float - Float Fishing the Roaring Fork

Last summer my stepdad Rob and I were lucky to be invited by Jay Scott of Jay Scott Outdoors to float the Roaring Fork River near Basalt, CO. I had never fished the Fork at all, and Rob had never floated it, so we knew we were in for a treat!

Jay had spent the summer rowing and wading the Fork, so was up on all the bugs that were working, and the other tricks needed to catch some fish. His knowledge and experience did not disappoint!

We had an awesome day: we caught a bunch of fish on dries (rainbows, cutthroats, and browns), saw some deer and a bald eagle, laughed, joked, and reminisced, and generally just enjoyed some time on the water.

Enjoy a few pictures from our adventure...
