Before the snow melts from the Colorado Rockies and the rivers start running too high, Tom, Shawn, and I hiked down into a canyon to do some tailwater fishing. It was also a perfect day to put my new Battenkill Disc Reel to some good use. With clear blue skies and the water running cold, the fishing was a little slow, but we managed to get a handful of amazing trout into the net.
