One of the major consolidations will be the TenkaraGrasshopper Guide Services and Guide Availability Calender into one page. By doing this I hope to make it simpler for you to find out about the guide services we offer with Minturn Anglers/Colorado Skies Outfitters. You can click TenkaraGrasshopper Guide Service and Availability to get an idea of how this will help you to book trips.

There is one time of year that every angler in Colorado looks forward to and dreads all at the same time. We are in the thick of it right now... Spring Runoff!!!
With spring runoff we get very high flowing rivers and streams. Some streams are smaller yet are running at almost 200 cfs (cubic feet per second) which increases the amount of dirt and other detritus being flushed down river at high velocity. All of the dirt and other stuff floating downstream the water gets murky and unfathomable to the naked eye let alone the polarized lens eye making fishing difficult.
There are also reports coming from around the state where the rivers are running at 1000-5000 cfs. Flows of this magnitude don't just make fishing very difficult, these flows make it dangerous for an angler to be anywhere near the water.
But, there is still fishing that can done even with high water flows as they are currently going. Luckily, for those of us who live here in Colorado at least we know that the waters will not stay high indefinitely.

Tenkara is in my opinion one of the most esthetically beautiful styles of fly fishing in existence today in my personal experience. There are some styles of fly fishing I still have not tried like Spey Casting and salt water fly fishing so don't get to jumpy with me yet.
As a Tenkara USA Certified Guide, I have been leading some newbies on Tenkara trips around Colorado recently and have been asked some very interesting questions that led me to write this post. Some things I had thought about in the past and let them go some have come up more recently even for me.
