I'm gonna be in that part of the world in a couple of weeks (last couple days of July, first couple of August._ I'll be based out of Ridgway State park along the Uncompahgre tailwater (below Ridgway Dam). I'm also looking into heading over to the Black Canyon to fish the East Portal. This is going to be a little bit of a hit and run trip, so a full hike-in to the Black Canyon looks unlikely at this point.

I've only got three solid days to fish, so it's unfortunately going to have to be a "just hit the highlights" kind of deal. Anyone ever been to that area before?

I've fished a ton in NW Colorado, but that part of the state may as well be the dark side of the moon, and I'm excited as heck to see it. I've been told to expect a pretty good Pale Morning Dun hatch on the Unc, so I've got a bunch of those ready to go.
