Fished Dillon Sunday (3PM to dark) with my son from shore. Water very low, but water coming in strong from the Blue. Should fill soon. Great day to be in the Rockies. Fish somewhat cooperative. Between son and me, landed many rainbows (most stockers, but a few holdovers, 16ish), sometimes hard to keep them off, fishing for other species. Also, a cutbow, customary sucker, one brook, several browns, (nothing big, 14-17 inches, but I love them),..and,..my first char, (in fact two). ! Biggest was just shy of 17 inches, and the second was around 10 inches. Sorry, no camera. I was pumped! New species for me. Couple fish caught on nightcrawlers, but most on a kasty, silver and rainbow colored, including the chars. Now, people put down Dillon, and maybe rightly so, not the fishery it was 20 years ago, but still a great place to fish. Hope for the future. And if the char take off. (I heard there was good natural reproduction), it might again become a destination. Eat the mysis!! Grow the browns!

Dillon Sucks-

But a Char would be cool.
It may not have your easy pickin overgrown 20" stockers that you can go up north or off some rock in south park with a kasty and rack up a stringer of death followed by great stiff arm camera angles, and then coloradofisherman.com reports with meat pics.
But Dillon doesn't suck

Just a few from the last half of may.
