Clear Creek Stream Fishing 201 August 11
DENVER -- Intermediate anglers who want to improve their stream fishing technique are invited to register for a small fishing clinic to be held on Clear Creek in Jefferson County on Sunday August 11.

Participants will learn about stream ecology, how to read fish habitat in creeks and how to catch trout with spinning gear on small, cold waters.

"Small streams are challenging but they can be productive and a lot of fun even without a fly rod," said District Wildlife Manager Todd Schmidt. "I'd like to help a few anglers learn how to explore small creeks on their own and come away with some great fish and a lot of smiles."

Because Clear Creek Canyon is steep and the creek channel is tightly constrained, the clinic is limited to 30 people. The canyon will confront anglers with difficult slopes, abundant rocks, and slippery, wet footing, so only healthy, active, sure-footed anglers over the age of 12 should apply.
