Colorado River Fly Fishing Report

The fly fishing on the Colorado River has gotten much better with the increased flows. The cold water being released out of Green Mountain Reservoir has been a relief for trout living in the Colorado River. Current flows at Kremmling are right around 1400 CFS with water temps in the mid 50’s. The Hoppers are out and fish are willing to take a big dry drifted along the grassy banks. Chubby Chernobyl (Tan, Olive, Brown, Black) has been a solid go to fly from Pump House to Catamount. Early in the morning fish are also keying in on smaller midge patterns such as the Griffiths Gnat and Renegade. The streamer bite has picked up with Kreelex, Slumpbusters and Sculpzillas getting a lot of attention. Nymphing the deeper runs has been a great way to find fish that are not willing to eat a dry fly. Midges, Tricos, RS2’s, Chocolate Thunder, Rainbow Warriors and Caddis have all been working well under a bobber. Be sure to adjust your weight and depth accordingly.
