Colorado Stream Update:

Current Conditions at Deckers:

Flows are still a bit high for the time of year but fishing is still good despite water levels. Nymphing has been the most effective technique but if you put your time in with a dry dropper you can find some fish looking up.   The fishing is fair.  Overcast skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 56-59 degrees and Crystal Clear.
