Trouts Fly Fishing Forecast | May 22nd Edition

Ivan Orsic / May 22, 2021

It's that time of the year. Our annual spring runoff is here. For some, it's an inconvenience. But, in truth, it's a vital and valuable time for our Colorado rivers and the longer it extends, the better our summer of fishing will be. Over the next two weeks, our tailwaters, stillwaters, and warmwater targets will provide consistent fishing.

Fishing on the swollen freestones can still be productive if you choose wisely. Generally, the hydrograph will tell the story and falling water is good for clarity and fishing. If you do choose to fish a freestone during spring runoff, focus your attention on soft water and if you find one fish, chances are you'll find quite a few fish stacked up close to that very same drift. Stoneflies, worms, big caddis, and even blue-winged olives will produce fish.

On tailwaters, caddis, blue-winged olives, midges, and your standard attractors will continue to put fish in the net.
