Fishing Report Colorado River

The Colorado River has been fishing great top to bottom. Big hoopers drifted along the undercut banks have been producing a lot of trout, especially early in the morning. Once the sun gets high try dropping a small stone or red quill under your hopper and fish through the shallow riffles. Water levels on the Colorado River are perfect for floating and will remain great throughout the fall. The streamer fishing has also been productive with Olive, Tan and Black being the best streamer colors. The Colorado River has some incredible undercut banks so be sure to get your hoppers and streamers as close as you can. You will be surprised how close to shore some of the trout are holding. Red Quills, Caddis, BWO’s and Midges are all hatching on the Colorado. This can make it difficult to match the hatch, so if you are struggling to catch fish keep swapping out your flies. Copper Johns, Zebra Midge, RS2’s, Barrs Emerger, JuJu Baets, Stones and Hares Ears are all goo flies to be presenting under and Hopper or indicator.
