3 Places To Fish In Colorado This Weekend - 11/12 Edition

Brandon Rodriguez / Nov 12, 2021

Don't worry if you are still sitting at your home office or cubical wondering where to fish this weekend. We have you covered. Today we are taking out the guesswork when it comes to where to go fishing. We won't just be going over where to fish but, more importantly, how to fish and what to throw. If you want to take even more guesswork off your plate this weekend, shop our staff fly selections tailored to any river you will find here in Colorado! No matter if you find yourself fishing along the Front Range this weekend or up in Summit County, both our retail locations will help you dial in whatever river you fish. So, without further ado, let's dive into the top three places to fish this weekend.


South Platte River - Cheesman Canyon

Latest Update 11/8/2021 --

The canyon is flowing at 100 CFS. Tiny flies are the game at current flows. Midge and RS2 patterns in sizes #18-22 are still working well. Baetis adults are still present lately, so don't leave dries out. #20's and #22's have been fooling fish on top. Check out the suggested flies below for a good starting point.

Frying Pan River - below Reudi Reservoir

Latest Update: 11/10/21 --

The tailwater is flowing at 45.8 CFS. Fish will be concentrated in deep holes below the dam. Try a Mysis Shrimp #16-18 trailed by a midge or baetis nymph size #18-24. Make sure you're getting your flies down to the fish! Light tippets will also be a critical factor in producing fish - we'd recommend 5-6x, at least! More prominent attractor patterns have been working well too. Before you head up, make sure you stop by our Denver location to browse our expansive tailwater selection!

Eagle River - Minturn to Wolcott

Latest Update: 11/10/21 --

Flows at Milk Creek below Wolcott are still at 112 CFS. Excellent fishing is here! Nymphing and dry/dropper rigs are going to be the best tactic. Some flies to keep in mind would be Stoneflies #10-14, Eggs #12-14, Midges/Emergers/Baetis #18-22. A good strategy would be throwing streamers in the early morning and transitioning to nymphing tactics in the warmer parts of the day.
