Colorado Stream Update: Great weather in the Roaring Fork Valley. The boat ramps are clear and people are floating. Fishing has been fantastic.

Current Conditions at Roaring Fork:

Find the deeper pools and spend time nymphing. Eggs, Midges, Small Stones and Micro Mays have all been hooking fish. Midges have been the best flies but the fish are also eating the above mentioned. Warmer temps are forecasted for the next week making for incredible fishing weather. Nine mile is has plenty of excellent water to be fishing as well as sections thru Glenwood. Enjoy the spring weather.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Crystal Clear.
