Colorado's Lower Blue River

The 15 miles of river between Green Mountain Dam and the Colorado River have been somewhat protected from fishing pressure due to a lack of public access, but that is all about to change with an upcoming land swap. That’s led fly fisher Chuck Obermeyer to lead the push for vigorous protections for this important brown trout fishery. “‘Previously, they refused to review the regs until 2010,’ Obermeyer said. ‘Well, by 2010, the river would be wiped out.'” Ed Dentry in the Rocky Mountain News.
