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."

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.
