South Fork, Colo., offers great fishing in a beautiful setting with opportunities for fellowship.

Russell Husted, our fearless leader on the always popular South Fork, Colo., trip, says the lodging and dates for this year’s unofficial  event are set. “This year we will be leaving on July 20 and will return home on the 27th. You may come and go as you wish, but this is the timeline the majority of the group will use. Saturday night we will stay in Raton, N.M. Lodging is up to you, and Raton has many great places to stay.” Participants who prefer to drive through to South Fork, Colo., need to make appropriate reservations.

The base of operations will change this year. “Once arriving in South Fork, we will call Ute Bluff Lodge home for the week. We have stayed here once before, and the Lodge has many options for us. There are cabins, small rooms, and a spot to park your RV or camper. When we last stayed there, the community dining area was quite the hit.”

Remember, this is not a regular club outing. Participants need to make their own lodging arrangements.

Last year, the lack of snow the previous winter throughout the Rockies meant generally low water flows and higher water temperature. That should not be a problem this year. The Wolf Creek Ski slopes have received close to 200 inches of snow as of mid-January and there’s no reason to think that won’t continue. Or you can just check out the latest snowfall at Wolf Creek on their website link below:
