On this sweeping characteristic for Fly Fisherman Journal, Dennis Pastucha takes readers on a journey by means of the Yampa River in Colorado. The Yampa is Colorado’s final free-flowing river with a pure hydrograph, regardless of the dam at Stagecoach Reservoir on its headwaters. It flows, unimpeded, for 250 miles earlier than it meets the Inexperienced River in Dinosaur Nationwide Monument.
However there’s a lot extra to the story of the Yampa, and Pastucha does a wonderful job of guiding the reader by means of the area’s historical past and significance. You’ll be able to learn his story right here.
