We hope your Memorial Day on the water was a productive one. After some cooler weather last week, flows on our freestones dropped and we saw some great mid-runoff fishing as the freestones cleared. But, with warmer weather on the horizon, we're fully expecting flows to jump again. Salmon flies have arrived on the Colorado. If you choose to chase these big bugs, go with the hopes of dry fly fishing, but expect solid dry-dropper fishing as well as productive nymphing and potentially off the charts streamer fishing.
On tailwaters, we're seeing lower than average flows. If these flows continue, tailwaters will prove to be a little more technical with caddis, blue-wings, midges, and attractors putting fish in the net. As we progress into June, PMDs will start to pop up, so be prepared with the appropriate nymphs and dries. If flows bump, big subsurface offerings will be the ticket.
