Colorado, Day 7......Grape Creek

Thursday morning bright and early had to take my daughter to her first day of school. after i dropped her off i came back to the house and took my son to golf practice. 11am jake is done with practice and we are on the road to fish a semi-local hush hush creek that the locals say they don't like to publisize. 12:30ish we are on the rigged up with hoppers and on the river. it was suggested that we hike up about 3-4 miles to get into some bigger fish but we didn't have the time to do so so we just fished our way up from where we parked. walking and fishing along the river i have never seen so many hoppers, it was insane. the first 1/2 dozen fish or so that we hooked into were in the 10-12" range, nice little brownies, but as we worked our way further up we started getting into some bigger browns. we fished for about 5 hours throwing different traditional hoppers and some attractor type hoppers and all in all it was a fun day with my son on the creek. this was jake's first time throwing dries, i think he's hooked.
