Colorado Stream Update: The Blue is fishing great!

Current Conditions at Blue River Below Green Mountain:

The Blue is fishing great with flows around 280cfs. With these flows, it makes for easy wading and great access to the river. Lots of bugs starting to move around on the warmer days. Focus in on those stonefly patterns as well as eggs. The streamer bite is always great on the blue. Our favorite colors are white and tan.

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Slightly Off.
