小孫子貝貝從小常跟他爸爸去釣魚,對釣魚有點興趣,丹佛一位朋友對釣魚已是專業級高手,得知貝貝對釣魚有興趣,特地邀我帶貝貝跟他去體驗一下所謂的Fly fishing,我們要去的地點是位在Mount Evans Wilderness區內的Idaho Springs Reservoir該水庫正位在Mount Evans 山下Summit Lake下方的Chicago Creek山谷中,多年前曾沿該河谷上行暢遊三大湖,712日上午我們約在九點鐘抵達Echo Lake停車場;

將車停好後從停車場登山口出發,海拔10,600 (3,231公尺),行小段路到Echo Lake西岸,沿西岸南行。

過了Echo Lake後遇Chicago Lakes TrailEcho Lake Trail岔路,取右沿Chicago Lakes Trail南行,行不久步道開始在稜線西側沿著山腰朝南往Chicago Creek下切,沿途透空處北望落磯山脈大陸分水嶺 James PeakIndian Peaks等山脈;

遠眺完南、北山岳後步道開始轉為較陡的“之”字形下坡直切Chicago Creek山谷;下抵Chicago Creek山谷後由橫跨在Chicago Creek上之原木橋渡過到西岸,此處海拔約10,342(3,152公尺),距登山口約1.1哩;

該水庫圍籬上告示牌特別提醒” catch & release only”,意即釣客將魚釣上後隨即放生,不可帶回家食用,所以釣客主要享受垂釣的樂趣!

Fly Fishing,有人稱之為西式毛鉤,也有人稱之為飛蠅釣,本質上是一種擬餌釣法,也就是將天然材料(如羽毛、獸毛)或合成材料纏、繞至魚鉤上,試圖將鉤子裝飾成目標魚種可能的食物來源,例如水生昆蟲、小魚、小蝦等等,或是利用魚的習性剌激目標魚種去攻擊鉤子,進而釣獲目標魚種的一種方式。

貝貝在朋友John指導下開始享受Fly Fishing的樂趣,我沒有購買釣魚證、除了看他們垂釣外順便到附近步道走走;

此水庫鱒魚魚隻雖不大但數量卻不少,貝貝大大小小釣了十幾條,頗有成就感,雖然一條魚也沒能帶回家,但貝貝說從John處學了不少Fly Fishing的知識和技巧,可謂收穫良多!
