Colorado Stream Update: "This is what fishing is all about."

Current Conditions at 11 Mile Canyon:

The fish have started to move into their traditional winter lies, and have been extremely picky. Like many of the tailwaters throughout Colorado, it is still not a gimme, but our past few trips here have been great. 7.5 foot leaders and 4x-5x tippet should get the job done.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 44-47 degrees and Crystal Clear.
