Grand Lake and Boulder Creek

I got a chance to hang with the family and friends this weekend - and got to fish with both.

I headed up to Grand Lake with the family on Saturday - we had breakfast, looked at a cabin, got lunch, headed to the boat docks, got ice cream, did some fishing, headed to the beach, had dinner and then were back home by 9:30pm.
It was a great day in one of the most beautiful parts of Colorado.

We used worms and caught a bunch of little stockers between 6 and 10 inches and two that were about 12 inches. The kids had a blast and were somewhat into it - until the ADD kicked in.

On Sunday I went up to Boulder to hang with Steffan and get my brakes done - he has all the tools and the knowledge to fix anything - so it was easier to go to his house. After a couple trips to the auto parts store it only took about 20 minutes to replace my front brake pads and rotate my tires. We hit up brunch and hung with his wife for a while - then made our way to Boulder Creek. It was a hot day and the water felt awesome. We managed a bunch of 4-10 inch browns - Steffan on dries and I used a couple midges.

It was a great way to beat the heat and hang with Steffan. Normally we hang out a couple times a week at lunch during work, but the last few weeks (basically all summer) have been too hectic for both of us. We need to find more time to hang out. Thanks again man for helping with the brakes!

Dillon Reservior Camping/Fishing

Technically it was considered a day fishing out on the lake, with worms and a Transformer rod. Camped overnight and rented a boat and hit Dillon, it was a lot of fun for the kids - one hit on the worm, but nothing took.
