Colorado Stream Update: It's cold in South Park but the fish are still feeding!

Current Conditions at Dream Stream:

The recent cold snap that came through has pushed trout to deep holes and mainly feeding on small offerings-- think of winter time fishing again. Use black Rojo Garcia's, red zebra midges, and small size #22 Pheasant Tails to get the job done under the indicator. An occasional riser can be taken on a Sprout's Midge in eddies and slow moving water. This is definitely 5x and 6x tippet territory as well.

Fly fishing reports have been fair to good. The winds have been manageable and during the calm days we have seen some prolific insect hatches. The fly fishing is on! Try smaller midge and mayfly patterns.  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
