Hecoma Ranch Fishing 08/01/09

Hecoma Ranch Aug 01 2009
Bob Janiga, Randy Kulig, Kurt Rhymestine, Cliff and CJ Jurgens, Fred Ferganchik and I spent a great day of fishing at Hecoma Game Ranch. We all met for breakfast in Cedaredge before we got down to the business of fishing. By the time we started fishing the temperature was hot but the fishing wasn’t on fire. At lunchtime we took a break and Fred entertained us with a sightseeing and historical tour of both the Hecoma Game Ranch and Coury Ranch which was very informative and the sights were spectacular.
Bob Janiga (Rome, New York), Randy Kulig (Ohio, New York), Kurt Rhymestine, (Herkimer, New York) are from central New York and are excellent fisherman. This type of lake/pond fishing was new to them but they caught on fast.

Cliff Jurgens
CJ’s First
My son Cliff and Fred are at the novice level. My grandson CJ is a beginner and experienced his first successful fly fishing trip. Kurt especially wanted to catch a large cutthroat which he accomplished late Saturday afternoon.
This Snake River Cutthroat was the largest fish caught on Aug 1.

They have really grown, eh?
