Tomorrow we would hike down off the mountain and continue further into the wilderness to try our luck for Rainbows at a secret beaver pond complex that few people knew about. They called it ‘Complex B’. It was rumored that within this beaver pond complex, lurked monstrous and freakishly sized Rainbows and Brook Trout. Our mission was to see what was there – to check it out, to confirm or debunk the rumors.
No, I am not talking about the cartoon! I am talking about the best place to fish for trophy trout (arguably) in Colorado. It was only a couple of days ago, on the 27th of April we saw the opening day at Spinney Mountain Reservoir for the 2019 season, and today May 1st, the south boat ramp at Antero Reservoir opens up; with the north boat ramp following suite a couple weeks later on May 25th. Last but not least, we saw Eleven Mile Reservoir open up for boating on the 29th of April. So officially, the 2019 South Park season is well underway!
So, try enjoying the hell out of your next cast; your next missed strike; your next 2-hour drive to your favorite fishing hole; hell, even your next bird’s nest because it all means that you are still here. You are still in the game, you are still in the fight we call life.
