Delaney Buttes and Big Trout

We just spent a few days near Walden, Colorado at Delaney Buttes chasing larger rainbows and browns. The fishing there is usually done from belly boats, but we do well casting from the shore. The bugs were fierce, but the fishing was good enough to keep them tolerable. Here’s a picture of the lakes and our camper. Also images of rainbows Kimball landed with her 5 wt. We both got well into our backings and were broken off on big fish we couldn’t stop…in a lake! They just burrowed into the hydrilla and kept going. I netted some good ones too. That’s an 18” net she is holding that fat 19” rainbow in.
