Colorado River - Upper Colorado, Pumphouse to Grandy

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Nymphing dries, and streamer fishing! Big articulated streamers with a smaller wooly bugger trailing behind have had the best results with large browns aggressively chasing. Black, olive, yellow/brown and rust colors have been producing good sized fish. Pat's rubbers legs as a lead fly for a nymph rig has been doing really well. Red quills, BWO, caddis, Rs2's and stone fly patterns have been the flies of choice.

Seven-day forecast 

Mid 60's for the week out in Kremmling. Bring sunscreen and layers, still cold in the early morning. Flows are holding steady and fishing is great!
