Yampa River

Techniques 

Nymphing is the most effective way to fish this time of year. In town and at Chuck Lewis fish egg patterns and bead head nymph patterns in deep holes, slow-moving runs and pools. Good dry action can be found at the tailwater section.

Seven-day forecast 

A mix of sun and snow this week. Nymph early in the morning then look for risers eating midge emergers mid day through mid afternoon.
