Colorado Stream Update: Areas near Gypsum are fishing well!

Current Conditions at Eagle:

Winter fishing on the Eagle has been great. Areas near Gypsum are fishing well especially durring the early afternoon when condition are the warmest. Fish are still being found mainly on nymph rigs in deeper runs and holding areas. Midges, and small baetis offerings are finding the most eats. Trail these flies behind a bigger offering like a PT or a caddis. Stripping small-ish streamers through current breaks and near structure has turned some nice fish as well. The upper sections of the Eagle are getting icy.

Winter fishing conditions are in effect  The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 32-35 degree weather. The water temperature was between 32-35 degrees and Crystal Clear.
