Paris Jons Takes his Boys Fishing

August 20, 2015

My good friend Paris Jons asked me to take his two sons Henry and Rooster and their friend Mark Doty fishing yesterday, and I scheduled a trip to Fish Creek Ranch near Dolores, Colorado. Henry is 10 and Rooster is 8 years of age and these kids are serious outdoorsman. Upon arrival we split into two groups and my other guide Chris K headed off with Mark and Henry and I fished with Paris and Rooster.

We started at a sweet pool where Fish Creek and Groundhog Creek join. Rooster casted a Dry Dropper Combo (#12 Stimulator on top and Pheasant Tail Bead Head Flash dropper) into the pool and the games began. A few minutes later, Rooster had a fat 16" Rainbow in the net. I looked upstream and was thrilled to see Henry Jons' rod bent over with another fish on his line! A picture showed later he had netted another nice rainbow!

Fish Creek Ranch is a Private Water experience available to any angler willing to rent the Lodge or to book a trip with a Guide who has access to this spectacular property. An added bonus for anglers who have a harder time "walk wade fishing" is the use of Polaris All Terrain vehicles to access the property.
