Fishing in Fall: Boulder Creek

October 7th, 2023

Each day, the stars come out a little bit earlier, there is a slight chill in the mornings, and the leaves appear a little yellower than they did last week. This means that tubing Boulder Creek is coming to an end and that unfinished alpine climbs may need to wait until next summer. However, as fall approaches, new opportunities arise and that slight chill starts to feel pretty good as you run, bike, or fish the Front Range. Over the next couple of weeks, the water levels along the Front Range will start to fall, yet there is plenty of time left for an amazing fishing season in Boulder. Rivers... Read More

An Ebio major by day, slam dunk champion by night. Meet Mak, my neighbor and current SlamJampalooza winner. Mak moved to Colorado from Alaska to attend CU Boulder and hone his mini-hoop skills. Every opportunity he gets, Mak travels around the world to scuba dive and fish. If you were to ask Mak how he would describe himself, he would say he’s a mix between Shaq and Aquaman. An opportunist by nature, there is no doubt Mak helps make Boulder the intriguing place we can all call home. Thanks Makane!  Read More

Is Fishing a Sport?

August 28th, 2022

On my way to the gym last Saturday morning, I took the opportunity to listen to a little sports radio, hoping to find out the latest news on the Rockies, Broncos, or other local sports. Instead, the topic of conversation was about trout fishing. As I double-checked the station to confirm that I was listening to sports talk radio and not NPR, the host rambled on about fishing on the Roaring Fork River. There are three questions that have baffled mankind since the existence of time. Is there life after death? What came first, the chicken or the egg? And is fishing really a sport?
