Hilariously Terrible National Park Reviews
This one explains itself.

With 23 miles of Gold Medal water the Roaring Fork is a fantastic trout fishery, and a little slice of heaven for fly fishermen like myself.
When Not to Summit
The morning started as all mornings do when we go hiking or fishing, by checking the weather. Today we would hike to the summit of Chief Mountain, or so we thought…
Cache La Poudre River
The Poudre River, has been cursed with a horrible name, but blessed with excellent fishing.
Chief Mountain – The Lost Trailhead
Chief Mountain is a relatively short hike with reportedly amazing views at the top. However, it’s easier to climb than it is to find, but we make that easy too!
The Frying Pan River
Looking for technical fishing and big fat fish? Look no further than the Gold Medal section of the Frying Pan River.
