It's a bluegill from the smaller lake at Rocky Mountain Arsenal. There's crappie in there too.

That looks like a crappie. I have never seen a blue gill before.

Crappies don't have the blue gill and have way more spots or bars. Also a difference in placement of dorsal fin. I saw a few small black crappie hanging out under branches but couldn't cast to them.

Yep. Either dries of streamers.

I have been using a black bodied fly with a very light or high-vis wing. Usually elk or deer hair to keep it floating all day long.
I have also been using a dark olive to black wooly bugger at times.

I typically pack both fly rod and spin rod and use the spin rod and bubble approach when the wind gets tough or when the fish seem to be a little far out of reach for my fly rod. I have about 9 foot of 5X tippet after my bubble.

Friday night there were so many barn swallows on the lake they kept going after my dry fly and pushing it under water.

Dr. Sholl's foot powder works great as a dry fly desiccant. :thumbsup:

I've been going up there for a number of years now during the 1st or 2nd week of August. This was THE BEST wildflower bloom that I have ever hiked through. They went on forever.
