Eagle Creek Fishing at Two Color Campground
Drive west on Rd 77 from Boulder Park, past West Eagle Meadows, to Hwy 203
|Eagle Creek at Two Color|
On Friday the 13th we went FISHING! Well, Rick went fishing and I went flower hunting, resting, cloud gazing, and fish sitting! It was a great day! We drove up to Two Color Campground. The water was cold, or at least Rick SAID it was. I had to agree for the 10 minutes I stood out in it also! Rick caught his limit in under 45 minutes I think and then played around abit. It was so much cooler than down in the valley.
Saturday afternoon we packed up the tent trailer and drove it up to Catherine Creek State Park for the Conklins to use for the next 5 nights (Cherrie's sisters needed a place to stay.) This was the reason for our second fishing adventure on Thursday - we had to pick the trailer back up!
