It's officially time to check out high alpine. Water levels on the front range have dropped and water temperatures start rising. To get a full day of productive fishing throughout the summer hit the trail and pack your creekin' rod. High alpine lakes and streams can produce a lot of beautiful wild fish. Head up here with a multitude of ants and beetles, some smaller attractor dries and a few bead head nymphs in a size 16 to 14. These flies paired in a dry dropper set up will work, but having some small buggers to strip wouldn't be the worst option. Pack some 4x leaders and tippet alike and you should have a bent rod in no time.
