I took the family camping up at 11 mile canyon this weekend and decided to bring the fly rod along. I am not what you would call an expert fly fisherman (I buy my flies or bum them off a friend at work), but I absolutely slayed the trout over the two days. I honestly could not guess how many fish I caught, but is was a lot. Caught mostly bows with a few browns mixed in. I also believe the big one below is a cut throat or a cut bow as it had a nice orange/red slash below the gill plate -- for some reason it did not show up in the picture. I was mainly fishing with black/silver midges -- called black beauties I think, and a small red san juan worm. The big cut bow was caught on an egg sucking wooly bugger and I caught several small trout on a hi-vis baetis right before dark. Not a lot of top water action going on. If you are a new fly fisherman or thinking about giving it a try I would highly recommend 11 mile canyon as there are a ton of fish there.The section I fished is catch and release only -- which is shame -- some of those fish need to be culled as they have a nasty fungus growth all over them. The place was packed on Saturday -- but it did not matter as the fishing was great anywhere -- especially in the very shallow fast water. I was up next to the dam and ended Saturday with my 3 year old son breaking off a 16 inch fish that I caught on a midge pattern that I found in the mouth of a trout that I caught on a san juan worm -- the circle of life ;D. He had a blast for the 30 seconds that he had it on.
