Rainbow Trout Everywhere !!!

The Pandemic didn't stop this years Casting For Recovery Retreats at the North Fork Ranch.

They had 2 very successful retreats with 12 participants each.

  • Casting for Recovery sponsors fly fishing retreats for breast cancer survivors...the weekend is free of charge to the participants and a unique opportunity to bond with women who all have experienced breast cancer.

  • They spend the weekend learning the art of fly fishing by tying their own flies, which many land trout with.

  • They spend time learning to cast a fly rod and then...... Sunday is the test !!!

  • They get out on prime Colorado water...the North Fork of the South Platte @ the North Fork Ranch on Highway 285, near Bailey.

  • A testament to the amazing guides who volunteer their time is the ability that these women have to properly set the hook and reel in a very large trout !! The participants also get a chunk of credit for being good listeners, patient & can quickly apply what they are taught.

  • In the end, this group of women is in an enviable situation by even the best angler out there !! It's impressive to see the beautiful 18+ inch trout that are filling the nets of the guides.

It's lots of fun to witness the awe on their faces

This year, a rare palomino trout was landed, along with many more beautiful rainbows & browns
