Colorado Stream Update: The snow slowed fishing down at Quincy but it's still a prime still water destination in Denver.

Current Conditions at Quincy Reservoir:

Trout fishing has been good here when tossing out Parachute Adams and Yellow Stimulators while the bass fishing has been superb when fishing the flats where there is lots of under water vegetation with Bass Poppers.

The water is high everywhere around Colorado‚Äôs Front Range. To find good fishing try hiking to mountain streams and lakes. Many of these streams are flowing at a fishable level.  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Crystal Clear.
