Eagle River

Private water is the place to be right now but the public stretches are a close runner up. The diet is consistent with the Front Range – Midges, Olives, and Eggs are the main stay but don’t be afraid to slow strip a streamer in the lower stretches for a lethargic trophy trout.
Gore Creek 
This weeks snow and weather might put the kibosh on Gore Creek but stay tuned. When this bebe opens up again, the fish will be hungry for your mini leeches and egg patterns!

Saturday, 1/24 – Charlie Craven Fly Tying Demo!


Craven at Minturn Anglers – Denver

Come by the shop Saturday, Jan. 24th for a day of Charlie Craven flies. Charlie will be here at the Denver shop tying flies from his books, “Charlie’s Fly Box” and “Charlie Craven’s Basic Fly Tier”.
Craven got started in the business as a commercial tyer when he was twelve years old. He guided on the South Platte and other area waters for about twelve years or so, then moved on to help open and run a fly shop in Boulder and eventually opened Charlie’s Fly Box.
Charlie has since written two books and developed a reputation for tying amazing flies and being a great teacher as well.
Mark your calendars. More details to come!
