Walker ranch and Sandbeach lake

4.5 miles and 2000 ft in higher elevation leads to a lovely little lake called Sandbeach lake. When we arrived there were a few people around, but they were not fishing. From what the guide book said, this lake should hold greenback cutthroats and it could get really windy. For us it was nice and calm and the fishing was pretty good. Casting a hopper with a pheasant tail nymph trailing you could watch the trout come up out of the deep and make a charge at the hopper. I was having some really issues with hooking fish as I go about six trout, but five were on the nymph as I was to slow or fast with the dry fly.

Included in this post are some photos of walker ranch in boulder county.
