    My dad his friend and I are going to be fishing the ford 15,16 and 17 of February. Anyone else from this board plan on going that weekend. It would be nice to meet a couple of you guys and maybe swap a few rocky ford patterns at the creek. Has anyone fished the ponds near the upper hatchery? I might give them a try while were there. Hope to see some of you guys over there.:thumb

    their are some big fish in the ponds. They are extremely spooky, stealth is key. Those ponds have no cover for the fish and they are essentially in a "fish bowl". the only reason they are there is the guys at the hatchery take buckets and dump the fish in there for anglers to catch and release. I fished them in January and had no luck. I would see a fish cruising around and try to ambush his course with a scud. As soon as my fly line hit the water, the fish would alter course and bolt away. still, its a blast to test the skills. good luck! YT:beer2
