Fishing Conditions

Below the dam, fishing will be pretty good. Fish your favorite nymph rig with worms, leeches, attractor nymphs, and scuds.

The upper is fishing good but you gotta get up early, or hike far.  This is not a secret location.  For those heading into the Weminuche.  Fish as far as you can hike or spend the night.  Single dries, streamers, or dry/droppers are a solid way to fish this section.


Nymphs:  Prince Nymphs 12-16, Brown Wired Stone 10, Copper John 12-18, Pats Rubberlegs. Pheasant Tails 16-20, Pickpocket 12-16, Duracell Jig 12-16, and other Euro Nymph Jigs 10-16.

Olive and Grey Scuds 14-16, Ray Charles, etc.

Chubbies, Amy’s Ant, and Stimulators 12-16, Morrish Hopper 8-12.

Parachute Adams and Rocky Mountain Mints 14-16.
