September Meeting: Kerry Caraghar on Clear Creek
September 20, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
September 20, 2016 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Next week is a busy week for CCTU as we have our September meeting on Tuesday, September 20th and the Fundraising Party on Thursday, September 22nd.
For our Tuesday membership meeting Kerry Caraghar will present his new presentation Hiding in Plain Sight…Prospecting for Trout on Clear Creek. Kerry is a native Coloradan who grew up fishing the beaver ponds of Buffalo Creek near his grandfather’s hotel. He became an Orvis Endorsed guide and instructor in 1988 and has guided and conducted schools for the Flyfisher, the Blue Quill Angler, Angler’s All, and Aspen Outfitting. Kerry joined the Orvis Company in 2005 and in 2008 received the Fishing Manager of the year award before retiring from Orvis Cherry Creek in 2015. He is currently the Director of Fly Fishing Schools and a guide at The Blue Quill Angler and a passionate proponent of fishing close to home on Front Range waters.
Long written off by anglers because of historic mining pollution, Clear Creek has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years as water treatment facilities and other restoration projects have helped improve water quality and allowed its wild trout fishery to rebound. From some unique cutthroat trout opportunities in the headwaters to the “Golden Mile” in Golden – Kerry considers Clear Creek “home waters” and knows it top to bottom as well as anyone – and he is ready to share his insights to help you make the most of your fishing on this often under-appreciated local water.
