It is great to see that much of Colorado is finally beginning to dry out. Here's a quick weekend fly fishing report.
Brown trout(Salmo trutta) are an anadromous fish that naturally reproduce in rivers across the state of Colorado. They are also one of the pinnacle species for fly fishing enthusiasts. Being an anadromous fish, browns have an instinct to ascend into rivers from the sea to spawn. In land locked states, this drive still exists and browns typically begin a migration from lakes or lower sections of a river to upper sections when the days begin to get shorter. Here are a few opportunities and properties where you can have a unique opportunity to get in front of these fish this fall.
As this big storm begins to dissipate we highly recommend that you do a bit more additional research before you head out the door. There are still many areas of Colorado that are under flash flood advisory. The Colorado Office of Emergency Management is a solid resource to pay attention to over the next few days. It has fairly regular updates on conditions and road closures.
Also, when you decide to go fishing, use our Stream Flows page to make sure you have an understanding of current flows and water levels.
