Colorado Stream Update: Fishing has been decent lately

Current Conditions at 11 Mile Canyon:

With the morning temps getting lower fish are taking a minute to get active. 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.

The crowds have been managable - Winter conditions are settling in  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 40-43 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
