Current River Flow Updates

Latest update: 10/13/21 --

This section above the Williams Fork has been dealing with warm temperatures and it is advised to not fish above the Williams Fork confluence.


The section below the Williams Fork confluence is getting some much-needed colder water into the river system. This is making for some good fishing. Look for caddis, pale morning duns, small stones, drakes, and more to be hatching. As we move towards fall look for blue-winged olive hatches on the cloudy days.

Historical River Flow

River Information

Our great state's namesake river rarely disappoints and offers anglers the chance to catch large Rainbow and Brown trout. The upper section- between Windy Gap Reservoir and Kremmling- sees abundant bug life and has earned a Gold Metal rating due to it's thriving fish population. This freestone river offers ample public access and year round fishing.

Seasonal Conditions

While the Colorado is fishable year round, the summer time, and it's abundant insect hatches are definitely what attracts many anglers to this river. Come late June, PMDs and Caddis certainly do their part in getting the trout interested, but it is the Stoneflies- particularly Salmonflies- that really get both the fish and fisherman excited. It's tough to beat spending a summer day throwing a 3" long dry fly to rising fish. Nymphs and Streamers will consistently put fish in the net here as well throughout the year.
