The Dallas Fly Fishers (DFF) and Fort Worth Fly Fishers (FWFF) will again be holding a joint outing to South Fork, Colorado this July. Dates for 2024 are July 13-20.

It is the responsibility of the attendees to make their own travel and hotel plans, and bring their own gear. There is fishing available that will satisfy most anglers; small creeks, large rivers, float trips, and high mountain lakes. Our home base will be the Ute Bluff Lodge. If they are full, there are many other lodging options in South Fork.

We meet informally every morning to discuss the day, and spread out nicely. Every evening there is an informal “where did you go today and how did you do?” gathering. The Ute Bluff Lodge has a great community room that can be used for our gatherings if weather conditions are inclement. Remember to bring a camping chair, as we gather outside if the weather is nice.

Most of us will leave driving on Saturday mid-morning stopping somewhere between Amarillo, TX and Walsenburg, CO. to spend the night before heading onto South Fork Sunday morning. Fish Sunday afternoon, and next 5 days, and return home the following weekend. You can also fly to Denver, Colorado Springs, or Albuquerque, and rent a car.

Monday night there will be a BBQ at Wolf Creek Anglers, and an informational session about fishing the area. Many of us used Wolf Creek Anglers for guide trips, with great success. We should see similar favorable conditions again this year, with the recent late snows, that blanketed Southern Colorado.

Please let me know if you are planning on attending. If you have any questions, contact Russell Husted at 682-261-1702 or
