Colorado Stream Update: Fishing has been difficult

Current Conditions at Williams Fork:

Between the stream restoration and winter conditions starting to set in, fishing has been so-so on the Willy's. The upper sections are experience waves of dirty water. Lower sections near the confluence of the Colorado may be your best bet for finding a few eats. Nymph-rigs fished in deep holding runs with an attractor fly such as a Prince, Hare's ear or leech followed by a selective emerger or midge offering is a good place to start. Fishing a streamer is never a bad idea.

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 fair.  Clear skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
