I just got back from a trip to the South Fork of the Platte River in
Colorado, and the place was beautiful. The scenery was almost as
good as the fishing. Picked up a pretty 20” rainbow on a Jujubee
Midge under a Red Zebra midge.
The Trouts Fly Fishing fly shop
in Denver set me up nicely. Be sure to stop by if you ever land in
Denver. Then, a visit to
Flies and Lies in Deckers, CO where I fished was also helpful.
May 8 is a date you may consider as I will be volunteering at the Wounded Warriors event at Lake Suson. This is a much shorter drive for the veterans than the trout parks, and much easier to attend. We’ll be fishing for blue gill/pan fish, bass and catfish. I received the invite from Amy Milne. If you’re interested in joining, please give me call.
This month’s Montauk outing still has plenty of rooms available. The outing takes place May 17th through 19th. I encourage everyone to consider joining me and call Ed Olander to book a room. Our outings are always a good time and one of the major benefits of membership of Ozark Fly Fishers. Ed had been doing an amazing job keeping these outings going each month. See page 2 for more information.
Terry and Roxanne Wilson had a great presentation on ponds at our April Monthly Meeting. It was fascinating to expand from our usual topics and to learn more about warm water fishing. A big thank you to Terry and Roxanne for coming out to speak with all of us.
See you on the water!
