While not a big river by any means, the Williams Fork was absolutely stunning, with golden Aspen leaves lining the entire river from the dam all the way down to the Confluence with the Colorado River. The fishing was not on fire, but we were able to keep our rods consistently bent, catching many of the rivers wild trout. The Willy truly is one of the states best brown trout fisheries. It's a shame that I never was able to fish the river before Whirling Disease devastated the population of Rainbow Trout, but I am glad that the Rainbows left in the river are big!
Was able to help a fellow angler out landing, and snapping a few pics of beautiful 22" bow that took a maroon San Juan Worm. I was stoked to be a part of another fly fisherman's biggest fish of the year, and feel the camaraderie amongst anglers that we share in this beautiful state of ours. Everyone on the water, enjoying a perfect fall Colorado day on the Williams Fork, trying to fool some fish.
