Colorado River –

Flow: 2670 cfs/Glenwood Springs

Conditions: Variable water clarity due to recent mudslides in Glenwood Canyon. Currently less than a foot of water-vis is present and is not very fishable. Hatches have consisted of Yellow Sally’s and PMDs midday with caddis in the evening hours. With the off-colored water, higher visibility flies like San Juan Worms, Rubberlegs, Prince nymphs etc will be good bets. When fishing resumes, we suggest concentrating on the morning and early afternoon hours to minimize stress on the fish with what will soon be warm water temps.

Flies

Dries: Chubby Chernobyl, Foamulators, Stimi’s, Foam Hi-Vis Caddis, Renegades, X-Caddis, Sparkledun PMD, PMD Cripple, Sipper PMD, CDC Sparkledun PMD, Yellow Sally Trude, Variant Sally, Foam Humpy’s

Nymphs: Rubberleg Stones, Cheater Belly Stone, San Juan Worms, Jiggy Flashwing Princes, TB Electric Caddis, Sili-Worms, Perdigons, Cold War Caddis, Swissy’s, Translucent Sally, Tung Sally, Psycho Prince, Halfback PMD, BH Barr Emerger PMD

Streamers: Dungeons, Fire Breathing Dragon, Clousers, Double Bunnies
