Spring Report

by Blue Damsel Manager on April 29, 2014

We just finished a very busy spring season. We always have some good pre-runoff fishing in late March and early to mid April and the word is out. We were quite full this year and the spring report is all good! We had to deal with high water because of a lot of lower elevation snow melt, but guides got it done and everyone had some good fly fishing. We catch a lot or really big trout in the spring and this year was no exception.
The best news of all is the summer outlook. Snowpack is over 160% of normal and it is still snowing and holding in the high country. Everyone feels very good about good stream flows and water temperatures all summer. Our overall bookings reflect this. We still have some dates left for small groups and couples. Also, due to two recent cancellations, the whole lodge is available for 4 nights in late July and 3 nights in August. That’s it for being able to accommodate a group of 8 to 10 exclusively. The phone is still ringing and we are filling up fast. Now is the time to call if you are interested in a trip to the fabled Blue Damsel this summer.
As always, we are essentially shut down for an anticipated huge spring runoff. Keith is back in Texas, taking care of business, and Josh and Sam are happily busy with one of the things they love-building stuff! They are working on some custom coffee tables, a new baker’s table, and some new display cases for the Pro Shop; And a few other little surprises. The lodge and staff will be ready for our first summer guests in early June and we hope to see you this season. Everything is shaping up to be our best one yet.
