Dual sport to fly fishing?

Well I finally got my xrr. And I have had some great luck fishing boulder creek in town, clear creek (before the fire) and the dillon tailwater. I want to check out some ice-out fishing that might have a decent either trail or dirt road to? I'd like to go either tomorrow or Friday. Hit me up if you are interest (I'd ride a ways if the water is good)

Geek's probably a good man to hook up with for this sort of fun...He's got some good spots and some better fish stories.

Would love to head out with you some time Luke.

Just don't ask me to ride with my rod pre-hooked and strapped across my chest.. I've ran into problems with that in the past

Haha I could imagine that going bad quickly. I'll shoot you a pm.

Ended up riding past the west platte (still a bit low) and up to the YMCA road up towards deckers. No fish but it was pretty nice out for most the day. Saw two guys (xrl and Ktm adventure?).

Name this lake

Great Thursday

I've caught a lot of big trout but few fought as hard as this guy.
This may sound weird, but the fish was so pretty I had to eat him. 21" long 6" wide. Amazing eating.

My bad, I saw flyfishing in the title and added the pic to your post. I thought this was the other flyfishing thread.

Probably a Triploid but def a Cutbow cross of some sort. Took a 18 beadhead prince at about 12' deep on 4.5# tippet. FUN! Never surfaced once which makes me wonder. My buddy wanted to clean him and said it was just starting to get eggs?? He found a nice size baby bass or perch in his belly too. If you notice the gill hanging out that was from cutting his throat. My buddy said we should bleed him for better taste. It worked.

Employed and not as flexible a schedule as I would like, but am game to get out for some weekend fly fishing when I can. Part of the reason for getting my KLR, get to those back road fishing holes.

Dual sport to fly fishing?

Looking for others to go fly fishing / dual sport riding to the back country locations. Bought this bike last summer and have been outfitting it for fishing back country traveling.. I now have a rod tube mounted to a top box for ease of access. Let me know if anyone is interested. I live close to Deckers, but travel the state looking for little steams and beaver ponds to fly fish.

Cheers.
