Yes - a couple years back in July. A mule deer in velvet crossed the stream a few yards away from me. Beautiful.
There are huge rainbows just below the dam but they have seen everything. You'll need very very small nymphs (size 26 or 28) and 7x flouro to have a chance. Stop into the fly shops in Steamboat Springs to see what they recommend. I did catch a couple of cutthroat just downstream, again on nymphs. You can fish downstream a bit before it turns private. Also a bridge further down with deeper water. Might have been cougar warnings posted.
A lady flyfisher had names for each one of the big rainbows. Obviously, she had been there many times but was still trying to fool them.
I actually caught more trout in downtown Steamboat - best luck on a Griffiths gnat but who knows what they'll be hitting while you're there. Have fun if you go.
went last week going a again friday my uncle works at stagecoach
I have not been and I would love to go someday........
They seem to be an excellent "spot" for fishing and maybe hunting......
