I fly fished Kannah Creek today. It is a small stream about 18' wide. It flows out of Carson lake on the Grand Mesa at an elevation of 10,000 feet down to an elevation of around 6000 feet. It runs swift but has many pools created by numerous boulders placed there by volcanic activity. I started just above the city intake at around 10 a.m.. It was sunny and very warm, in the mid 60s. The water was very cold and slightly discolored. There was a lot of midge activity but saw no surface activity. I decided to go with a # 18 Brassie with my 6' Rod and #3 WF line. It really paid off. I caught numerous Rainbows and a couple of Colorado River Cutthroats. They were nothing big but what is special is some come from natural spawn and they sure do fight like it! They were definitely out of their winter nap and were feeding like it. Later in the afternoon they were even rising to my yellow colored strike indicator. Overall a very productive day. Hope to hit it a few more times before run off.
