Rio Grande

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Best time is morning or late afternoon/evening when the sun is off the water. Fish attractor style dries with droppers in the riffles and pockets and edges. In the deeper riffles and runs fish with nymphs or double nymph. Have a few streamers with you. Take plenty of drinking water, the gorge can get hot this time of year. Fishing has been ranging from ok to excellent, the range is normal for the Rio.

Seven-day forecast 

Should keep seeing good fishable flows through September. We've been getting some rains that could give the Rio a little off color water to heavy stain. We are entering the normal prime season for the Rio Grande with good flows and cooler temps.
