Colorado Stream Update: The dream is giving up some decent fishing! - Cover water

Current Conditions at Dream Stream:

Fishing at the Dream Stream has been decent lately, as we transition into winter. Most fish are being found on nymph-rigs with midges and small baetis offerings. With winter conditions really settling in, target deep holding runs and pools. There has been some sporadic hatches of tricos. Presentation is everything; bank presence, line management, and casts will make a difference. More selective offerings like Two-bits, WD-40's and RS2's have been fooling some better fish. Midges in blues and black have also been successful.

The dream stream has been producing some trophy fish. Walk softly as to avoid spooking big lake run fish. Make sure you have a quality set of polarized glasses. Winter is around the corner and the crowds on the South Platte should be dying down a bit.  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
