The beauty of small stream brookies is that they will hit anything. The down size is  that they are pretty small. This one came from a stream at 10,500 ft on a may fly- but like I said they would hit anything. Egg patterns,midges,any dry fly, etc.  The only down side of the trip is that I broke my fly rod. Oh well,  these things happen.

I won't tell where this stream is -- but there are hundreds if not thousands of them in Colorado -- get out and find one -- its a blast

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought this was the fishing report section. I don't know how many countless so called "reports" I have read that don't give any actual info. Maybe I'm crazy but someone should start a bragging catagory for these type of posts. Just my two cents.

Well Chief, sounds like you are a little bitter.
And for your info every small mountain stream in CO has about the same report for brookies. any fly will do. So go fish.

Peace,
Mauser

Pretty brookie. Here are a few I picked up this spring from the Grand Mesa. They were all about 12". I wish more people would keep the ones caught in streams to keep them from stunting.

i tell folks were i catch my brookies as almost every brookie stream or lake needs some thining id rather have a shot at some 2 pound brookies than catching 100 10"ers

and i think some were before it was said that the reports should say were when and how and i have seen posts moved in the past when they didnt include that info

but in his defense he did say a small stream at 10,500 with a mayfly so thats not to "secretive" although he didnt say when if you want to split hairs lol

but maybe karma bit him in the but already he did say he broke his rod right?

so comon down and thin out the brookies in my streams and soon we might get some biger fish

Karma didn't bite me, the damn car door did. But hey, 6 years on a 70 dollar fly rod -- not to bad in my book. 
Its not the fish I am worried about -- its the area.It was intrusted to me by a friend, and I will not give up an area that someone has intrusted to me. As far as moderators moving this post -- go for it -- I will only cry into my pillow for a few hours

As far as catching small fish. Sometimes thats all I want to do. Some days I would rather catch 40 small brookies along a couple of miles of stream  than bust my butt all day long for one decent fish. Its not always about catching the big one, so if it means that many of these streams will stay under fished and over poplulated, well thats alright by me. There are plenty of streams that have huge fish -- but with that comes the huge crowds.


OURAY -- Damn nice fish! Don't worry I won't get upset if you don't give me GPS coordinates to the exact spot you caught them

Lol I dont know about the GPS coordinates but I will tell you it was Weir and Johnson Reservoir. I also enjoy solitude over size of fish. Nothing better than a few miles of stream to ones self! It is definately getting harder to find.
