Taylor River - Central CO Rockies

Tip of the week 

Tandem nymph rig in deeper holes, dry dropper rig or dry emerger rig in shallow water at C&R. Try midges in varying sizes and colors, caddis pupa, mysis shrimp, 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 longer leader of 12 feet is best for this gin-clear tailwater section.

Seven-day forecast 

Flows from Taylor dam are up to 1,030 cfs. This increase in flow will open up more holding water for trout along the banks throughout the entire Taylor. Use cation while wading. Midges, BWO's, and caddis are hatching throughout the day, keep both a tandem nymph rig and a dry-emerger rig on deck to adjust quickly with the hatches. Call the fly shop for the most up to date reports.
