Colorado Stream Update: Perfect spot right now.

Current Conditions at Williams Fork:

With rivers across the state starting to blow our tailwaters are a great options. The Willy's fork is flowing at 126cfs this make for easy wading. I would highly recommend checking out the fork before it gets too high. Nymphing will be the best option and focus your efforts on the deeper runs and pools. Fishing right at the confluence of the Colorado can always produce some nice fish. Check it out for yourself

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Slightly Off.
