Sorry for the delay, a certain site maintainer has been recovering all summer from surgery...
The kids derby went off great as usual! The winning fish was one of our 20"+ holdovers from the farm. As always, we couldn't have made this happen without the support of our supporters. Make sure to check them out on our supporters page and if you're interested in becoming a support, drop us an email.
966 Arapahoe has been given a fresh coat of paint, some new pavers on the patio and a lot of vegetation mitigation. It's looking great, be sure to swing by and take a look. Thank you to Club president Paul Kuehnel and caretaker Michael Thompson for heading this up. In addition, thank you to club members who were able to help out.
The fish are doing great this summer. Between the kids derby and monthly summer stockings, we're left with 100 large holdovers for next year's derby. In late July, we received our next shipment of 2000 fingerlings from Colorado Parks and Wildlife. These fish are getting bigger everyday and should be a great catch at the kids ponds come next summer.
High lake stocking
Traditionally, the Boulder Fish and Game Club has had a chance to help with the stocking of the lakes in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Due to scheduling conflicts for the past couple of years, we have not been able to do so. Sadly, this year will be no exception, but with great news that stockings will be on hold for a while to make room for pure strain Greenback Cutthroat Trout!
A recent influx of new members has helped the club a lot. We've had extra help with cleaning and stocking runs and it's helped the club tremendously. Thank you to those new members and we're glad to have you aboard. If you wish to help out with us, drop us an email on the contact page.
Member Fishing reports
In the spirit of what the club was founded to do; promote sport in Boulder County. We figured we would add a quick blurb about our experiences. This is by far not a traditional fishing report and we suggest checking the reports on the websites of our local fly shops which can be found on our supporters page. While trips to the south, north, and west are fun, most of our club members opt to fish local waters. This season, a longer run-off meant more fishing in the Indian Peaks Wilderness where it seems each high lake seems to hold healthy, less pressured fish. We highly recommend checking these lakes out which can run from a day trip to overnight camping.
