FLOW: 2,410 cfs in Glenwood Springs .
WATER CONDITIONS: Couldn't ask for any better
OVERALL RATING: 8 out of 10 It's gettin pretty silly out there.
FOOD SOURCES PRESENT: Caddis (14-18),Yellow Sally's (14-16), BWO's (18-20), Golden Stones (6-10), PMD's (14-16),
THE SHORT AND SWEET: The Colorado is back in shape and fishing incredibly well. Guides have been coming back with some awesome reports over the last week. It may sound crazy, but the majority of fish are being caught on small BWO, PMD and Caddis patterns in the size 16 - 20 range.
THE IN DEPTH REPORT: From what the guides have been saying, if it looks like there is going to be fish in a good lookin spot, there's going to be fish in that spot. Look for the inside seems behind rocks for a lot of browns to be stacked up. We're getting close to that time of year when the browns will be spawning and they're definitely moving around and getting aggressive. Make sure your well stocked with Princes, Red CJ's, Yuba Pupa's, and Kitty Poo's. If you're not in a boat, be prepared to put in some windshield time moving from spot to spot. If you're lucky enough to be in a boat some of the best floats have been anywhere from South Canyon to Silt.
Hints: Cover water. You'll be hopping in and out of your car going from spot to spot frequently if you're wade fishing. Cover the good water, catch some fish and move on to the next area. You can't expect to fish one or two pools all day long.
