Taylor River - Central CO Rockies

Tip of the week 

Tandem nymph rig in deeper holes, with a dry dropper rig or dry emerger rig on deck at C&R. Try mysis shrimp, midges in varying sizes and colors, caddis pupa, scuds, and san juan worms. Sight fish to feeding fish and avoid fishing to fish that are not active. Adjust your depth, size, and color regularly depending on the water depth and the depth at which the trout are feeding. A stealthy approach is important in this clear section.
Further down the canyon try steamers in morning and evening, and Isonychia duns and spinners mid day to afternoon.

Seven-day forecast 

You can fish the Catch and release area lelow the dam all winter and down stream to about cold springs. The rest of the river is basically done until the spring thaw.Call the fly shop for the most up to date reports.
