Stillwater fishing in the mountains has finally wrapped up. A few lakes here and there are still open enough to drag a belly boat out and make a day of it, however most of our shop favorites are done for the season. As of this past weekend, the Delaney's are mostly frozen and after this next North Park cold snap, they most likely will be sealed up until 2016.
The Laramie Plains lakes have also capped with ice, with the exception of Hattie.
We do still have "warm water" opportunities, including Horsetooth here in Fort Collins and some reservoirs in Loveland but it's going to be a very different game than when fishing in the middle of summer. From here on out, the best opportunities for a good day on the water involve a tailwater or the lower canyon and icy guides!
All we can do at this point is fish the tailwaters and lower canyon, tie flies for the upcoming season, and wait until spring...
