Colorado Stream Update: The Blue is coming into winter form.

Current Conditions at Blue River Below Green Mountain:

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.

The fishing is great.  Partly Cloudy skies and 24-27 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
