What’s going On

Colorado: Cfs 6,800; 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 GWS) Cfs 2,700; Hatches: caddis nymphs, beatis nymphs and dries, midge nymphs, green drake nymphs. Flies to use: epoxy back green drake nymphs size (6-10), peacock stone flies size (6-12) twenty inchers size (6-12) prince nymphs size (8-12), red copper johns size (6-12) Hints: Water is still slightly discolored, yet all the fish have been pushed to the banks. Try short leader rigs in the 3x pound class and nymph large bugs close to shore. Be prepared for hard fighting fish.

Roaring Fork (middle) (Basalt to Carbondale): Cfs 1,600; Hatches: caddis nymphs, beatis nymphs and dries, midge nymphs, green drake nymphs. Flies to use: epoxy back green drake nymphs size (6-10), peacock stone flies size (6-12) twenty inchers size (6-12) prince nymphs size (8-12), red copper johns size (6-12) Hints: Water is still slightly discolored, yet all the fish have been pushed to the banks. Try short leader rigs in the 3x pound class and nymph large bugs close to shore. Be prepared for hard fighting fish.



Roaring Fork (upper)(Aspen to Basalt): Cfs 1,200; Hatches: caddis nymphs, beatis nymphs and dries, midge nymphs, green drake nymphs. Flies to use: epoxy back green drake nymphs size (6-10), peacock stone flies size (6-12) twenty inchers size (6-12) prince nymphs size (8-12), red copper johns size (6-12) Hints: Water is still slightly discolored, yet all the fish have been pushed to the banks. Try short leader rigs in the 3x pound class and nymph large bugs close to shore. Be prepared for hard fighting fish.

Crystal: Cfs 1,520; Hatches: caddis nymphs, midge nymphs, beatis nymphs and dries. Flies to use: Red copper john (8-12), prince nymph (8-12 ), bread crust (8-12), blood prince (8-12), black pheasant tail (8-12). Hints: Water is just becoming clear from run off.

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: Don’t be intimidated by small flies and light leader materials. There will be a lot of fisher people in the upper areas of river. Try fishing the lower parts of river in the evenings for great hatches and less crowds.

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).
