Colorado Stream Update: Feels like the middle of March. Get out there the fishing has been fantastic.

Current Conditions at Eagle:

Midge patterns are going to be your best bugs under an indicator. We are seeing a few fish rise here and there but nothing consistent. The lower river is getting a little stained from feeder creeks, but still fishable. Red, Black, Olive and Purple midges are all good colors to be presenting in slower seams and pools. Enjoy the spring weather.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
