Current River Flow Updates
Latest update: 8/3/22 - -
Flows at Gypsum are at 250 cfs. This section is open to fishing until noon from Wolcott to Eagle County Fairgrounds, but there is still a full-day closure from the fairgrounds down to Dotsero.
Nymphing rigs will be your best tactic in this section. Standard nymphing rigs with an attractor such as an egg/Stonefly/Leech #10-14 or larger Caddis/Mayfly nymphs size #14-16, followed by small emerger, baetis, and midge patterns size #18-22 have been the most effective. Streamers can be a good alternative or prospecting strategy below riffles in the slower-moving water. Thin mints #4-6 or larger articulated streamers in natural colors are good choices for this section.
