Around 4:00 headed back towards denver and decided to try fishing the South Platte River Down Stream of Wigwam. Stop / parked near the side of the road at a "P" area. First place I stoped No Fish however great scenary and was all alone except for the occaisional car. Second spot tried I caught 2 nice Rainbows about 12 inches. Then in the sam spot up river a ways, about 30 minutes later, I landed another big 18 inch brown. My camera was in the car so I couldn't take any pictures. Tried another 4 or 5 spots / holes and even fished Buffalo Creek going up to highway 285 towards Old Foxton Road however did not catch any more. Combined with the day at Spinney plus the fish / scenary at the river this day could not have gotton any better.

Yeah I am not a pro to that area however I am glad there are some fish in there....even that nice brown...really supprised me. All the rest looked like stocker trout or bigger. By the way have you been to evergreen lately?

I went to the Cheeseman Canyon stretch, above Wigwam with my son-in-law a week ago. Several fly fishers trying dry flies in the riffles and big pools and nobody seemed to have any luck. My son-in-law tied on a small nymph with a dropper and fished it deep in the Narrows; a stretch about 25 yards long and only 12 feet wide. He pulled out 30 trout in a couple of hours, biggest a 20" bow. I didn't bring a fly rod and was stuck with my spinning gear, finally got one brown on Panther Martin so wasn't skunked.

Buffalo Creek probably won't have fish for a long while. After the fire there were two consecutive 100 year storms on the burn and the creek was scoured out to bedrock. Not much, if any habitat left there.
