Colorado River - Lower Colorado

Tip of the week 

Still running nymph rigs, but a bit shallower with gray and olive Blue-Winged Olive patterns producing best. We are seeing fish rising to midge and Blue-Winged Olive adults in the afternoons in the slack pools and slow moving seam lines

Seven-day forecast 

Blue-Winged Olive hatch is going strong from Glenwood Canyon downstream to town of Silt. Some water clarity issues with the spring rains, check with your local fly shop on daily conditions.

Spawning closure in effect starting Mar. 15 to May 15:

No fishing on Colorado River 50 yds up and downstream of the confluences of Grizzly Creek, No Name Creek and Canyon Creek. Also no fishing of these creeks for 1 mile above confluence of Colorado River.
