Fishing Report

For the Week ending 3rd June 2012


**********************************

The temperature followed the plan laid out by the weatherman last week and proved warm and clear for most of the week. There was the occasional cloud cover blowing in with some wind and a hint of rain but generally nothing. The hotter weather over the past few days has pushed up the Fork to a new peak for the year and pushed up the inflow to Ruedi a little. But the flows have not been enough to color up the water to the point where it has put off the fishing. Ed reported excellent dry fly activity on the Colorado today indicating that the river is still in great condition for this time of year for fishing. He saw Caddis, BWO''s, stones, yellow sallies, a few PMD's and some drakes. In his view the Colorado has fished better over the last few days than the Fork.

The forecast over the next week is similar to the past week with the chance of a thunderstorm and temperatures getting up clos to the 80's on the hottest part of the day. As noted, the Fork touched 900cfs 2 days ago but now is back to the mid 600's. With the upper Pan flowing around 250cfs at Meredith and the outflow still around 110cfs, Ruedi is now 84% full. It won't fill at this rate but it is good that it continues to fill before the releases start.

We are starting to get busy now as the season gets moving and with the reports of good fishing on the Colorado while the weather remains where it is, one would expect more traffic shortly.


Frying Pan

Current Flow: below the Dam 110cfs. (if you want more uptodate figures check out current readings on our "Links" page)

The Pan remains at 110cfs and steady while lower down the flows pick up just a little with the tributaries contributing a little, but not much. Overall the fishing has been good with nymphing in the mornings and midges coming off while during the day there have been nice hatches of BWO's and a few caddis.

Recommended Flies:Use midges, caddis and BWO's.

For mysis at the dam use Mike's Mysis. epoxy mysis, and BUV mysis.

The midges will come off during the day, particularly if it is sunny. So try Wilson's Reverse Candy Cane #20, red and black chironocones #20, brassies #18 - #22, midge larva patterns #18 - #22, copper johns #18 - #22, black polywings #18 - #22 and garcia's rojo midges # 18 - #22.

As they come off try the gray loopwing emergers #20 - #22, the FPA special emergers, biot emergers both with and without the trailing shuck and gray RS2's #18 - #22. In addition try dry patterns such as the z-wing real midge, suspended midge and any similar dry black and gray patterns in sizes from #20 through to #26.

For baetis, try small nymphs such as pheasant tails, bubble backs, FPA sparkle baetis and rs2's. When the BWO's come off parachute adams and standard BWO patterns. Also try the parachute BWO and the thorax patterns. With the range of bugs coming off, larger BWO patterns will work well in the rougher water.

For caddis, wait for the day to develop and let the fish move towards the surface. In the mornings they are still tending to stay low and generally only coming to the surface if there is a decent hatch or some caddis floating through. Try small olive elk hair caddis and king's river caddis.


Roaring Fork

Current Flow: near Emma - 643cfs (if you want more uptodate figures check out current readings on our "Links" page).

The flows touched 900cfs several days ago but have settled back with some cloud cover and a little cooler air blowing in. Generally however the river is in great condition.

Recommended Flies: The best results on the Fork now are from nymphing using attractors, worms, midge larvae and emergers, stonefly and baetis nymphs. Good patterns include the BB FB Epoxy 20 Incher, the BTB Hot Spot 20 Incher and the CTB RL Epoxy 20 Incher.


Colorado River

Ed is preferring to float the Colorado now rather than the lower Fork and is having great fishing on both small nymphs and dries. He is starting later in the morning as the early cold holds back hatches until things warm a little. But generally he is reporting great fishing including dries in the later afternoon and evening. He is getting good results on the Royal Stimulator and the Lime Trude. For nymphing he is using yellow sally nymphs and small baetis. He was also suggesting using caddis pupa and larva.

Recommended Flies: Stonefly nymphs such as the BTB Hot Spot 20 Incher, rubberleg patterns such as Mike's BTB Coffee/Black and the Halloween Speckled Girdle Bug, with midges, eggs, worms and small baetis patterns behind the lead fly.
