Current River Flow Updates
Latest Update 4/8/2020 --
Flows at Englewood are currently at 71.6 CFS as of 4-8. Trout opportunities are all but over. The trout are so spread out and few in numbers that your time is probably better spent on other species now. After a few warm days the Smallmouth Have started to get active and throwing streamers or a crawfish pattern to cover or rocky areas will draw some strikes. Streamer patterns in black and olive will do the trick. Sculpzillas, Balanced Leeches, and Wooly Buggers are a good bet.
Carping opportunities are still abundant throughout town. Warming water temperatures mean happy & healthy feeders. Sight is still the most important part of the carp game on the DSP. Don't expect any blind casting hook ups- these fish will require some effort to locate. The best indication of a feeding fish are tails- carp will root around with their tails up searching for food in the substrate. If you've ever came across a small cloud of disturbed muck in the river, chances are a carp was recently feeding there. Recognizing popular feeding lanes and holding areas are a necessity when targeting them. A few of our favorite carp patterns that have been working well lately are as followed: Zimmerman's backstabber (olive), Near nuff crawdad (orange), and Carpholios (black).
