Exploring the Park City Area

After watching the Longhorns' season implode against BYU, I headed up into the mountains toward Park City to explore the town and nearby fishing holes and to start looking for a job.

Rainy day on the Middle Provo

Caught some fish on the Middle Provo, along with a bird

After spending a couple of days in Park City, I started working my way back to Lake City--first stop was the Weber River just 30 minutes from Park City.

Sunset over the Weber River

I came to a halt walking back to my truck when I caught this sunset reflecting in my window

After staying the night in Evanston, Wyoming, I made my way to the famous Green River below the Flaming Gorge Reservoir: the fishing did not disappoint!

More of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir, which is 91 miles long

You don't say that this road is closed?

Green River: The Green River joins the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park

Nice brown trout on the Green

Super chunky 19-inch rainbow on the Green

Scene of the Crime: I lost my last fish of the day in this stretch of the Green: he was easily 22-inches (if not considerably bigger) and burned through 50 yards of line before throwing my fly with an impressive back flip.  I need to get back here soon!

Final campsite of the road trip: a Walmart parking lot in Grand Junction, Colorado
