Colorado Stream Update: Fishing has been decent for the persistant angler

Current Conditions at 11 Mile Canyon:

11 mile is currently flowing around 75 CFS and fishing has been decent. Lately there has been some hatches of Tricos in the late morning. Small spinner patterns are taking some nice fish on the surface. A light nymph rig will fool fish as well. Patterns like Wd-40s, rainbow warriors, RS2 emergers, and midge patterns are must-haves. As always, when fishing subsurface be sure to dial in your depth. Expect fish to be holding in deeper water, moving towards winter positions.

Winter fishing conditions are in effect  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 28-31 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
