Colorado's Pre-Spawn Brown Trout

Charlie Meyers lists the top spots to go after Colorado brown trout — which by most counts are doing quite well in the state — during the pre-spawn fall season. “A middle linebacker on a top-rated defense, one might suppose? Stream fishermen certainly would offer a different nomination. When it comes to pure pugnacity, few creatures measure up to a brown trout on the cusp of spawning.” In the Denver Post.
Then Meyers follows the Colorado River where it departs from the pavement at McCoy on its way down to Dotsero and discovers a rarely fished portion.

    Something is definitely wrong in the state of Denmark, er… Colorado. I think someone is trying to make us think the fishing is better than it is or trying to get me to travel there. Peoples’ exhibit A: the first photo in the online article. At first it looks like the woman is holding a nice brown. Click on the photo. Now take a good look. She’s holding up someone’s fish carving or taxidermied fish. The fish’s skin looks dry, especially the tail. Take a look yourself. It doesn’t look real to me. Your thoughts?
