Colorado River Fly Fishing Report: September 10th 2019

The fly fishing on the Colorado River has been great and river flows are excellent for floating. Trout are still looking up and taking hoppers but are beginning to key in on smaller insects, such as PMD’s, BWO’s, Tricos and Midges. The Colorado River can fish different day to day so be ready to change tactics at any given moment. Shallow nymphing has been a good way to find fish that are not willing to eat a dry fly. PMD nymphs, midges, sunken trico spinners are getting plenty to attention below the surface. The big scum pockets and eddy lines hold a lot of fish, so be sure to focus your attention to these spots when fishing the slower lake sections of the Colorado.


The Streamer fishing has been good some days and off on others. If we have a guest that can throw the meat stick, the Colorado River is a good place to do it. The cooler nights should start to get the Brown Trout into pre spawn mode. You can present bigger articulated streamers on the Colorado River but do not over look presenting something smaller as well. Often times a little Slumpbuster is enough to entice those larger aggressive trout.


Keep an eye on the flows as they will begin to drop as we move closer to October. Feel free to call for more information on guided fishing trips on the Colorado River or last minute fishing reports, 970-368-5959. See you on the water.
