Colorado Stream Update: Spring fishing on the Taylor

Current Conditions at Taylor:

Fishing has been good on the Taylor. Flows are on the rise which has moved fish and bug life around. Look for fish to be moving out of there winter holding areas and move into the faster water. We are seeing a lot of spawning fish so do not target this fish and just move on. Get out and enjoy the Taylor.

The fishing is good.  Clear skies and 56-59 degree weather. The water temperature was between 48-51 degrees and Slightly Off.
