Current River Flow Updates
Latest Update: 6/14/19 -- Flows on the Dream Stream are up to 426cfs with a steady climb happening. Current fishing conditions on the dream stream are still fantastic. We have been finding more and more fish moving into the riffles every day. Our go to nymphing set up has been a leech as the lead fly, followed by a buckskin or electric caddis, then either a pheasant tail or juju baetis. Using a 9ft, 4x leader and 4x tippet will give you enough pulling power to land fish but will be just subtle enough to fool the bigger fish. The toughest times to be successful on this stretch of river are always those bluebird days. Make sure to keep a low profile when sight fishing and try to avoid walking on the high banks as much as possible. Make sure you are continuously adjusting depth and weight to correspond with each different run you fish. If you have the itch to throw steamers, try to plan your trip to the dream stream on an overcast day. Top producing streamers are going to be the Boogieman, Krafts Kreelex, and Dirty Hippies. If you have any further questions regarding the dream stream, feel free to give us a call at 303-733-1434 or send us a live chat on our website.
