We are lucky to live so close to such a great fishery. The power plant on the west end of Lake Estes provides clear water all year and never freezes in the winter. The water is comfortably cool now so wet wading is feasible. The brown trout that feed in the outflow range from small to trophy so take each strike seriously. My favorite fly this time of year is still the flying ant but a parachute Adams works too. Just skate or skitter the fly across the surface a few inches to get their attention.
