Colorado Stream Update: Flows have been in the 90 CFS to 100 CFS as of lately and there is nothing quite like a little early Colorado fly fishing in ElevenMile Canyon. Look for flows to remain stable over the next few weeks

Current Conditions at 11 Mile Canyon:

It is a nymph fisherman's game in ElevenMile Canyon with flows at 90-94 CFS. Midge fishing is the name of the game during early winter on this technical Colorado South Platte tail water. Zebra midges are by far the "guide favorite" on this river and when tied with Tungsten bead heads in hook sizes 20-24 in red, black and olive can end up hooking some true trophy Colorado trout. 9 foot leaders and 5x-6x tippets.

The fishing is fair.  Partly Cloudy skies and 40-43 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
