Colorado Stream Update: Winter on Bear Creek

Current Conditions at Bear Creek:

Winter is in full affect and fishing has slowed down. It may be a good idea to seek more fishy water at one of our tail-waters. Especially with the cold weather in the forecast, Bear creek may be done for the winter. For those looking to give it whack, target the warmest part of the day and any deep open holding water. Nymph rigs fished at appropriate depths are going to find the most eats. Hare's ears, Princes and caddis larvae are good choices for nymphs. Trail a more selective pattern like a Barr's emerger or an RS2.

The fishing is slow.  Partly Cloudy skies and 19- degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
