Fishing Report

There has not been much if any water running lately. The fish have not been very picky at all, with several different patterns working. So with those two put together, it’s hard not to have a good day!

Flies to try:

Olive woollie buggers
South Platte brassies: green or black
WD-40 midges
tungsten beaded midge
Peach or white micro jigs
eggs patterns (fished as an attractor)
Scuds: gray or tan

Fishing Report

This has been a really good week down on the water. If you like catching lots of fish and even some 20″+ rainbows, you need to be fishing now. I saw several really nice rainbows landed and released this week. There’s been a larger than normal midge hatch going on in the afternoons. Cracklebacks and south platte brassies were about all that was needed during this time. I think other patterns would work, but it wasn’t necessary to change.

The water has been off the last 2 days. Prior to that is was running in the morning, but off in the afternoon.


scuds: tan or brown
prism emergers
zebra midges
egg patterns
san juans- peach
south platte brassies green or copper
midge emerger in black

Wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Fishing Report

Those who have been braving the cold and recently the wet weather, have been hooking into several trout. Fishing has actually been rather good. Lots of warmer clothes are needed and some Stanley’s Ice Off paste hasn’t hurt either. Today we got just a light and spotty icing on the trees, again looking like we were spared the worst, but we still have gotten quite a bit of rain. They have been running the generators mostly just in the mornings with it being off in the afternoon.

Best Fly Patterns have been:

Scuds: tan, lt. gray, sowbug

midges: tungsten beaded, rusty, WD-40’s in black & gray

South Platte brassies: green

Soft Hackles: hares ear or phesant tail

Olive Woolies: smaller sizes
