Current Conditions at Colorado @ Kemp/Breeze:

The Colorado is starting to see lots of water in the system. Its that time of year again. Soon we should start seeing some salmon flies come off. With the high water focus on using streamers along the bank. Cast downstream and retreive the streamer back tight along the bank. Light colored streamer works the best in the off-color water.

The fishing is fair.  Clear skies and 19- degree weather. The water temperature was between 52-55 degrees and Stained.
