Updated Winter Fishing Conditions



The Ringer

The ice has cleared down valley on the Eagle, the Roaring Fork, and the lower Colorado.  Some sections are accessible on the upper parts of the rivers but conditions vary day to day.  Flows have been low but steady.  Some particularly warmer afternoons with lots of sunshine have created a few clarity issues on lower sections of the river with sediment clouding the water.  As far as flies go, small and thin body midges in grey, black, and olive have been working well.  Baetis in sizes 20 and 22 have proven successful as well but the best attractors have been small stone flies, chartreuse, apricot, and yellow eggs. The best times to fish have been mid morning to mid afternoon.  Go nymph your butts off!
