The mountains up there can have a lot of limestone, which colors the water in a unique way. I’m sure geologists will have a better answer, but the rivers were a stunning aqua color.
Unfortunately, most access points weren’t open to the public. In Europe, landed gentry in many cases today are still, well, landed. So, you must pay a fee, but most landowners won’t event allow that.
I’m writing all this because I read this post. I follow over 40 fly fishing blogs from around the world. It is fun to see what other anglers are doing.
So, let’s be grateful for public lands in the USA. Let’s defend them. Once we lose them, it is very hard to get them back.
Fish on, dear readers. The rivers are calling you.
