West Elk Update #6

Well, it’s been a good trip and now we are on the home stretch!  The guys spent the morning float fishing the Arkansas River with Ark Anglers of Salida.  I’m proud to report that the guys put their newfound skills to great use and everybody caught fish!  It was so much fun watching the guys come back from the float all jazzed up about the great morning of fishing.

 

After the float we packed up and moved north to get a bit closer to Denver in preparation for departing on Wednesday.  So here we are camped on the shores of the Dillon Reservoir outside of Silverthorne about to enjoy our last meal cooked in camp.  Tomorrow we will be preparing to leave by cleaning up the group gear and making sure everyone is packed and ready to go.  After the work, it will be a fun day.  We will be hitting up the awesome Silverthorne Rec Center for well-deserved pool time as well as showers.   After that we will check out the Cutthroat Anglers fly shop and then a great steak dinner to finish off the trip!

 

Look for the next update as we drop the crew off at the airport on Wednesday, until then.  Tight Lines!
