Colorado River - Upper Colorado, Pumphouse to Grandy

Tip of the week 

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. Time to start throwing those fall patterns, eggs and streamers

Seven-day forecast 

Mid 50's for the week out in Kremmling. Bring sunscreen and layers rain on Wednesday, still cold in the early morning. Flows are holding steady and fishing is great!
