Fishing the Yampa when its too hot to sail a boat in Mexico



Hello boating friends....

You have not heard much from me lately as the weather has been far too warm to venture down to Baja...

I am still living in San Diego but my boat is no longer tied up in Mission Bay.

My beloved sailboat remains tied up in La Paz, Mexico. The average day time high is in the mid-90s from about June to October. This heat also arrives with a fair amount of humidity.
So.. that is not pleasant.

After our final trip down in July, we decided not to return until the temps dropped into the 80s.

This is just starting to happen. We have our first post-summer trip planned out in about a week. Should be great.

So, what does a skipper do while not sailing?

Fishing of course!

 My father and I got out on the beautiful Yampa River in northern Colorado and pulled some nice trout of the river.

You can see the resemblance...

Truth be told, the Yampa is running a little low this year. We are all hoping that the snow pack increases into the Winter.... The fish could use some more water.

Until next time,
Captain Curran
