  1. I was born and raised in Georgetown and was taught from an early age to respect our mountain water ways and especially at spawn time. Great video! The colors are amazing.

    1. Robin, I’m glad you enjoyed the video. I’m a graduate of Clear Creek HS (class of 1992). It was great coming back to my old stomping grounds to film these fish. I grew up in the Evergreen area but had many friends in Georgetown and Idaho Springs. Thanks again for your comment on the video!
