Colorado Stream Update: There are some good opportunities for winter fishing but the crowds are in

Current Conditions at Deckers:

The fishery has seen a good amount of pressure at this point in the season, so a stealthy presentation is mandatory. Tippet sizes upwards of 5x are required to find the most eats. There are have been fish pulled from the surface with Griffiths gnats and tiny trico spinners, but a sensitive nymph-rig will find the most fish. Expect fish to be in slow holding areas, and deep runs/pools. Patterns like soft hackles, small caddis larva, and scuds are good point flies. Midges are very important - Black beauties, disco midges and top secrets are all great choices.

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