Ray - We're still in for 2017 and understand the caveats. Looking forward to the experience and read your explanations of the conditions as music to our ears. We have no contribution to location and will trust whatever is chosen. Timing is very open as well as long as it's before September.

I'm catch and release too.

I can name a few places I've fished in Colorado, mainly with my Dad years ago.

Taylor River north of Gunnison.
Gunnision River north of Gunnison.
South Fork Rio Grande near South Fork, CO. We were camping at Fun Valley Resort.
Roaring Fork River near Aspen, Co
Delores River north of Delores (fishless)
Grand Mesa lakes ( mosquitos chased us out )
San Juan River below Navaho reservoir just south of Durango in New Mexico.

Gallatin River northwest of YNP.
Firehole in YNP
Grey's River south of Jackson Hole

All these experiences were over 30 years ago so I'm sure things have changed. Mom and Dad always like forest settings for camping so it was rivers and creeks along these forest service campsites.

I've always wondered about the Conejos River in southwest Colorado.

Wyoming seems have fly fishing spread out more than Colorado. Their is the YNP and Grand Teton area, Wind River area, Laramie River, North Platte below reservoir dams.

Officially Cancelling the 2017 Greenhorn Fly Fishing Adventure

I am officially cancelling the 2017 Greenhorn Fly Fishing Boondocking Adventure.

It is with deep regrets that my heart is no longer in promoting Boondocking on the Airforums. This has been troubling me for some time and there comes a time when a decision must be made. Many do not understand my posts and threads, so obviously I am outside my area of experience.

Thank you for your interest. You are among a small minority. I must quit typing before I say anything that causes someone to criticize common sense and optional uses for their Airstream.

Ray, I have seen where you are pulling out of the adventures planned for 2017. I just wanted to let you know that I am saddened by the fact that there will not be opportunities for me to join any trips next year when hopefully my transportation and other difficulties would allow for me to join some of the adventures.
I have found your posts interesting and informative and quite frankly a breath of fresh air compared to some of the other threads on here. Thank you for being willing to take on a bunch of strangers and teach them stuff beyond their comfort zone.
I pray God blesses you and your wife with safe travels and beautiful vistas. I hope you decide to take on the challenge of teaching boondocking and rockdocking to us hardheads again someday. I am so sorry that I am missing that chance this year.

God bless and safe travels.
