Current River Flow Updates

Latest update: 1/22/2020-- Flows in Waterton Canyon are currently nonexistent. If you happen to find yourself in Waterton Canyon, usual winter fishing techniques using a tandem nymph rig will produce fish. Some flies to consider would be zebra midges in black, red, and olive in sizes 18-22 and juju beatis in black and red in sizes 18-22. Come by the shop and pick our brain if you'd like!

River Information

Waterton Canyon is a very good fishery located close to home that will always produce a few fish. Here at the fly shop, we believe that Waterton is one of the top locations in the front range to either learn to fish, teach someone to fish, or even practice a new style of fishing. Due to this stretch being located in a canyon, it will eventually gather quite a bit of ice on the edges. The weeks before the freeze are a fantastic time to intercept a few fish while they are fattening up for winter.
