Billy Burk fishing a reservoir in Colorado

Billy Burk is a good friend and fishes with Wapiti Waters as often as he can with his buddy Jeff (who lives here). Billy stays in close touch and sends us photos from time-to-time. Here are the most recent ones.
From Big Fish spring 2010 - Billy Burk fishing a high-park reservoir in Colorado

It's been very Windy here this year too. I took a day off for my Birthday on the 5th, and went to a High-park reservoir at a spot where you have to hike in for a couple miles. Ice off, and opening day did not happen till May 1st this year (very late). I had to fight the "W" for most of the day from straight-on, and my right boot (wader) had sprung a new leak. I stuck with it though; as the fishing was Great!  I landed 22 fish, all but one were in the 3-4 lb class; Whoo-Hoo! They were taking a red Ice cream cone- Chronamid pattern that I tied myself. The only way it could have been better, is if I had someone there with me to share the experience.

Wish I was coming this year again to see you! Will make a concerted effort next year!

Please tell Jack I said Hi. Will keep you up to date, especially after the Rogers' visit here next month.

Take care, and I hope your fishing season is an awesome one!!!!!
Thanks Billy, we will see you next year! Merle and Jack
