It's Monday, which means it's time for the Featured Trouts Guide Report of the Week. If you've spent time on our website over the past couple of months, you might have noticed that we've added a "Guide Reports" tab to the navigation bar. HERE you'll find up-to-date Guide Reports from our professional fly fishing guides. Each report will detail the location, timing, hatch information, fly selection, and rigging.
Check out this recent report from Brian Hilbert. Stay tuned to our Guide Reports tab, as it will be updated on a very consistent basis as we continue to get clients out on the water.
LOCATION: Colorado River - Horse Creek to Cottonwood
GUIDE: Brian Hilbert
LENGTH OF TRIP: Full-Day Float Trip
"Horse Creek to Cottonwood fished much better today. Started out with dry dropper setups which produced a few fish on small stonefly patterns. We had consistent action on the Chubby Chernobyl, so we switched to just a double dry set up. A size 10 Royal Chubby and size 16 Cinnamon Ant kept clients busy all day. Fish were really keying in on the ant pattern, especially the bigger fish. This time of year on windy days, try using a hopper or ant imitation as many terrestrials are blown into the river. All in all a great day fishing dries."
Royal Chubby #10
