Colorado Stream Update: Warmer weather has returned and fishing is starting pick up. No need to be on the water early, let it warm up before you venture out.

Current Conditions at Blue River Below Dillon:

Nymphing the deeper pools with purple, black and olive midges has been productive. Fishing hasn't been red hot but if you are willing to put in your time you will hook some fish. Light tippet and neutral colored indicators are necessary for best results. Flashback PT's and Mysis are making good lead flies. Eggs also make great point flies especially when sight fishing. Highs are forecasted to be in the mid 40's for the next couple days. This is a good time to get on the water.

The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 36-39 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
