Colorado Stream Update: Flows are dropping!

Current Conditions at Blue River Below Green Mountain:

The Blue below Green Mountain is currently flowing around 290 CFS. These conditions are nearing the ideal range to wade the canyon. As winter settles in nicely, target the warmest part of the day. A good nymph rig, with a bead head to get flies into the right column will produce the most eats. For beneath, think 20 inchers, princes, two-bits and barrs emergers. Depth is the name of the game so be sure to adjust weight accordingly. Streamer fishing has been decent lately as well. As always, be ethical as the browns cycle through their spawn.

This is one of the best times of year to be on the water! It is getting closer to winter and the fish are turning on to the midges again. Try fishing a Money Midge (size 18-22) for best results. The days are getting shorter and the weather is drastically cooling down.   The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
