June Fishing Report
With flows hovering just around 170cfs, 11-Mile Canyon should be fishing great for the foreseable future. There should be consistant hatches of BWO's, Midges, Caddis and small Stones which will have the fish feeding. Attractor patters like Stimulators, Royal Wulffs and Humpy's will also work well, particularly as the fish begin to see bugs consistantly on the surface. Nymphing will continue to be a productive method of fishing, primarily during midday when bug activity slows. Mornings and evenings will offer the best dry fly fishing as air temps will be the coolest during this time of day. Riffles and faster moving water will be ideal spots to fish, especially when bugs are hatching.
6/20/13 Update: flows remain good coming out of 11-Mile reservoir, and we don't expect to see things change much in the near future. Fishing will remain productive just remember to focus your time on the water to early mornings and late evenings for the best results. If you want to fish during the middle of the day, focus your efforsts on the upper river where water temps are a bit cooler.
Great fishing in Eleven Mile Canyon with less crowds due to all the hype the Dream Stream has been receiving. The Blue Wing Olives and Midges are thick and will hatch throughout the day, but when there is cloud cover expect the BWO's to be off the chain and make all the fish look up and eat dries and emergers.

Tips & Tricks
Work as much water as you can until you find where the fish are holding and feeding.
