Don't worry, there are a bunch more videos scheduled to appear in the near future.

Elk River, Colorado WATCH_ELK RIVER The Elk River is the main tributary to the Yampa River in northwestern Colorado. Aside from the Christina State Wildlife Area most of the public fishing is in the Medicine-Bow Routt National Forest. Rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout and cutthroat trout are all present.
N.F. Elk River, Colorado WATCH_ELK RIVER NORTH FORK The North Fork Elk River is my favorite part of the Elk River watershed. Flowing entirely thru the Mount Zirkel Wilderness for 15 miles, there is a trail head and trail giving access. I caught rainbows, brook trout and especially the Colorado River cutthroat trout. This is one of those streams an angler could camp out on for several days and fish a lot of water without seeing another angler.
Lost Creek, Colorado WATCH_LOST CREEK Lost Creek is a small tributary to Colorado's North Fork White River. The fish are strictly cutthroat trout. A steep hike thru the White River National Forest is required to get to it. Regulations require catch and release, artificial flies and lures only.
Mad Creek, Colorado WATCH_MAD CREEK Mad Creek and the south fork of Mad Creek offer good public fishing access in Colorado's Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area via trail 1100. While Mad Creek has brown trout, rainbow trout and brook trout, the south fork is strictly brook trout.
North Fork Big Thompson River WATCH_NORTH FORK BIG THOMPSON RIVER The North Fork Big Thompson River starts below Rowe Glacier in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, and flows for 22 miles. There is plenty of public access. This film shows the area along the North Fork trail. I wouldn't rate the fishing as great but there are rainbows, browns and a few brook and cutthroat trout to be caught. It is a scenic stream.
Sarvis Creek, Colorado WATCH_SARVIS CREEK Sarvis Creek, sometimes referred to as Service Creek, is a tributary to Colorado's Yampa River. The lower portion is private but the upper 15 miles run through the the Sarvis Creek Wilderness Area. It is a unique stream in that portions flow thru a large boulder field and at times completely disappear yet small open pockets still produce good brook trout fishing.
S.F. South Platte River, CO WATCH_SOUTH FORK SOUTH PLATTE RIVER The South Fork South Platte River was the first stream I fished in the Rocky Mountains over 20 years ago. It is now my first stream to film from Colorado. More Colorado trout streams will follow.
Middle St. Vrain Creek, CO WATCH_ST. VRAIN CREEK MIDDLE The Middle St. Vrain Creek rises along the Continental Divide near St. Vrain Mountain just south of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. It is said to offer good fishing for rainbow trout. Two national forest campgrounds and a trail are found alongside it.
Tarryall Creek, Colorado WATCH_TARRYALL CREEK Just about the only portion of 68 mile long Tarryall Creek that has significant public access is the lower several miles where it runs thru the Pike National Forest as it joins the South Platte River. The 3 mile hike is steep and difficult. A 4WD road CR-210 can get you to the trailhead. Browns and rainbows are the main species.
Lost Creek, Colorado WATCH_YAMPA RIVER The Yampa River in NW Colorado, downstream of Stagecoach Reservoir, is a good tailwater fishery for rainbow and brown trout. Some really big fish have been caught from that area. Habitat improvements have helped the fishery. It does receive a good amount of fly fishing pressure.
