What’s Going On
Colorado: Cfs 14,700, Fishing is not productive due to huge runoff and poor clarity. Please remember if you are fishing in creeks, you have the potential of hurting fish populations due to rainbow spawning grounds. Rainbows have laid and fertilized eggs in these creeks, which are yours and your children’s future fish. Roaring Fork (lower) (Carbondale to Glenwood): Cfs 5,980, Fishing is not productive due to huge runoff and poor clarity. Roaring Fork (middle) (Basalt to Carbondale): Cfs 2,600, Fishing is not productive due to huge runoff and poor clarity. Roaring Fork (upper)(Aspen to Basalt): Cfs 2,300, Fishing is not productive due to huge runoff and poor clarity. Crystal: Cfs 1,400, Fishing is not productive due to huge run off and poor clarity.Fryingpan: Cfs 155, Hatches: midge nymphs, mysis shrimp, caddis nymphs, beatis nymphs and dries. Flies: mysis shrimp (16-20), zebra midge of various colors (16-22), frying pan emerger (18-22), gray and olive RS2s (18-22), cdc beatis dries (18-22). Hints: Blue wing olive hatches have been superb. Look for areas where other fisher people are not located due to large volume of fishing pressure. Mid morning and evening hatches are your best bet for dry fly fishing.Other considerations: BarZx Ranch (very, very big fish in ponds but expensive to fish there), Rifle Creek (small fish but great dry fly fishing), Rifle and Harvey Gap reservoirs (pike, bass, blue gills, and trout). For the next three weeks we will have a lot of water. Good time to tie flies and clean your equipment for the season.The Valley Fishing Report is prepared by Colin Taylor, a fishing guide with Roaring Fork Anglers.
