Colorado Stream Update: n/a

Current Conditions at 11 Mile Canyon:


Crowds have been light in the canyon and fishing is good despite very clear and low water levels. Focus your nymphing with smaller BWO and midge patterns, like RS2's, Ju Ju Baetis and Micro Mays. Fish are still willing to eat on the surface so bring some small BWO dries on your next visit.  The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Crystal Clear.
