Trip Lead: Micah Foster
Participants: 8 (6 participants & 2 volunteers)
Dates: November 9 – 12, 2018
Location: Carbondale, CO. Elevation: 6,181 feet.
Lodging: Large house with full kitchen, eight beds, billiards room and immediate private access to river.
The Fishery: The Roaring Fork holds cutthroat, brown, rainbow, and brook trout. Approximately, 1.5 Miles of private access to fork and five to six private stocked ponds. Two fishing passes (possibly four) will be available for rotation among participants to fish the private water. Other river access includes a few other public sections of the Fork within ~30 minutes of driving.
Special considerations: We will be traveling on I-70 to get to Carbondale and the altitude will vary. Lots of layers is recommended as it will be November and weather will vary. A wading staff is always a good idea along with fishing with someone else. There will be both easy and challenging access for wading near the house and throughout the private section of the Fork. There are five-six ponds we have access to and we will have better information on level of difficulty with access, as the trip gets closer. There will be a bit of a hike down hill to a large stretch of public access on the Fork however, once at the river, there will be many less challenging wading opportunities throughout this stretch of water.
