Colorado Stream Update: "The Colorado fly fishing for the Rocky Mountain bonefish was great. We caught lots of fish on Jay Zimmerman's backstabber carp fly from Umpqua Feather Merchants."

Current Conditions at Downtown:

We found some nice fish tailing is a slick pool down by Denver's very own REI hole. The fly fishing was great!

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Off-Color.
