Colorado River - Upper Colorado, Pumphouse to Grandy

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The Colorado has been fishing well with nymphing being the ticket to success. The best rigs are double nymph rigs with a pats rubber leg and a small mayfly nymph in line. Dry dropper rigs have been producing as well with a longer dropper behind the dry. For the dry try a big hopper or terrestrial pattern, with smaller emerging patterns behind.

Seven-day forecast 

Mid to high 60's for the Upper Colorado area this week. Look for the weather to change in the afternoons and bring rain or snow. Overnight lows are going to be in the 30s. When in doubt fish it out! Don't forget sunscreen!
