A few hours in Waterton Canyon

Encouraged by my earlier trip to Waterton Canyon, I headed up there yesterday morning for a few hours of fishing. Again I biked the 6 miles from the parking lot to the uppermost stretch that in my opinion is the best water for tenkara.

The flows were still low at around 63cfs below Strontia, unusual low for this time of year. I remember being up there in the Spring with flows ranging form 600-800cfs which makes the canyon pretty much unfishable.

Anyway, it was a beautiful morning to cast some flies and catch the occasional brown trout on a purple sakasa kebari and watch some Big Horn Sheep hang out on the trail.

Tight Lines my friends!
