Colorado Stream Update: Winter fishing conditions are settling in

Current Conditions at Eagle:

The Eagle continues to give up some great days on the water. With colder temps things are taking a minute to get going in the morning, so target the warmest parts of the day. 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 stonefly 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 low, but sections near gypsum are ideal. Be sure to keep an eye out for Redds and as always fish ethically.

It is getting closer to winter and the fish are turning on to the midges again. Try fishing a Money Midge (size 18-22) for best results. For the best insect hatches, especially blue winged olive mayflies try to get on the water mid-morning on the cloudier and cooler days. The days are getting shorter and the weather is drastically cooling down.   The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 48-51 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Crystal Clear.
