Airstreams and Flyfishing

Springtime and flyfishing

I donít know how many of our fellow airstreamers are also self proclaimed fly fishermen, but I am interested in some of your favorite haunts and experiences involving your airstream and a fly rod.

Every year for the past 6 years, my son, my son-in-law, and myself venture north to Pittsburgh, NH (about 8 miles of the Canadian border) with the airstream in search of trout. We camp at Lake Francis State Park and fish the upper Connecticut River for rainbows, brookies, and landlocked salmon.

Although weíre still buried under a blanket of snow here in the northeast, the days are getting longer and itís time for the mail fairy to deliver catalogs full of all sorts of wonderful equipment designed to make it possible for the most evolved being on the planet to outsmart some sold-blooded, legless creature, with the brain the size of an English pea. And, all for the paltry investment just slightly larger than the gross domestic product a small nation.

Maybe this year.........

My wife and I both enjoy fly fishing. We have taken our Airstream (2000, 25' Excella) from Huntsville, Texas (just north of Houston) to Durango, Colorado and fished the San Juan River in the NW part of New Mexico. We prefer to stay in Durango, which has some really nice RV parks, and make the one-hour drive into New Mexico. We also have enjoyed fishing the upper waters of the Rio Grande between Creede, Colorado and Lake City. There are a couple of good RV parks in Creede or you can stay in national campgrounds at points along the Rio Grande. We have found good trout fishing in that area, especially for rainbows.
