So, has anyone been fly fishing up there recently? We lived up in the mountains for years, and recently moved to Highlands Ranch. I used to fish that stretch back almost 20 years ago. Just wondering what it has been like recently.

Waterton would be my last choice, there's other water around thats improved in the last 20 years to take up the slack where Waterton has gone down if you want to fly fish fairly close to home. You can always go up towards Deckers if you don't mind fighting the crowds (I do). Closer towards Cheesman dam the fishing gets better and the crowds peter out when you put on the hiking boots.

Yeah, I lived in Pine for the last 13 years. Cheesman was my home. I am looking for someplace close where I can put in a couple hours on the water, and not have 3 hours of driving to do it.

But thanks for the tips. I appreciate the feedback.

In a past life/ past wife I lived off of Pleasant Park Road in Oehlman Park and did Cheeseman a lot. I'll shoot you a PM on some spots for us lowlanders, but they ain't gonna have Cheesman Canyon fatties in em.
