Minturn Anglers guide with a nice brown through town 2/9/12


Trout fishing on the Urban South Platte has been nothing short of phenomenal all winter! We are consistently finding good numbers of fish and lots of quality fish.  I got out today for a few hours this afternoon and found steady action around 470 including this healthy 22″ brown that fought like CRAZY.  These are the hottest hardest fighting fish you will catch in Colorado!
