The fish are feeding prior to storms. Find fish in the slower, deeper water. Focus on this type of water as we continue to see cold water, especially in and around structure such as boulders. BWO hatches can be found east of town with some regularity during the warmth of the day. Nymphing has been most productive with small flies and light tippet. Water is stained and a bit up. Try a bigger stonefly or San Juan to attract attention in stained water, limited visibility. Flows will rise this week as two days of rain are predicted. Water just cleared but will turn stained again.
Fishing should continue to be good. Keep an eye on weather and water conditions for any changes in the fishing as rain is expected this week. Be cautious wading when flows are up and you can't see the bottom. Get out on calm overcast days for a little dry bite. Colder, windy days will be tougher, but you'll enjoy lots of elbow room.
