FWFF’s annual trip to the South Fork, Colo., area will take place this at a new venue. Host Russell Husted has contacted Cottonwood Cove, located between South Fork and Creede, regarding their cabins. They not only have vacancies now, but anticipate cancellations as well from groups changing their plans in light of the pandemic. There are also RV sites at Cottonwood Cove. So they should have room.
Russell needs to get a head count of people interested in making this trip. He’s at 972-567-4155, and he can help with your plans. “We do need act on this ASAP,” he notes. Russell notes is not only an outstanding fishing experience with lakes, mountain streams and larger rivers but also typically provides a week-long visit for a very affordable price. There are no scheduled guides, but there are plenty of experienced FWFF members who can recommend good spots to fish.
This new location follows Ute Bluff Lodge’s closing for the season due to the pandemic. As a non-club outing, members need to make their own lodging reservations. You can contact Cottonwood Cove at 1-719-658-2242. Ask for Brenda.
“We plan to leave on Saturday the 18th of July and return on the 25th. Usually, we plan to drive to Raton, N.M., on Saturday to spend the night, and finish the drive early Sunday morning, and then fish in the afternoon,” Russell says. The Saturday schedule has not been finalized yet, pending what lodging options in Raton are available.
