    Poudre + Higher Flows = A heckuva good time
    That math doesn't lie! Here in Northern Colorado, we face a wide variety of conditions that keep us on our toes.  As anglers we must constantly be assessing and adjusting our rigs to best suit the water conditions, current bug life, and the mood of our fish.  This often means having an entire size run of tippet, mono and sometimes...

  4. The Heavy Weights

    In preparation for this weekends’ epic weather forecast that is sure to bring a bit more water down the canyon, we decided to bring forth some of our absolute favorite bugs that make our high water months so productive.  Dirty water makes the fish feed.  HARD.  Jumps in flows act like a natural flush, much like what we see on...

  8. Snow Melt and Brown Trout

    Snow Melt and Brown Trout
    After months of seeing low, crystal clear water, we are beginning to see spikes in flows and fluctuations in clarity which signals the annual transition into run-off. Every year we hear many people hang up the waders and boots until July or even August.  You're going to hear us say this a lot over the next two months when it...

  10. The river is waking up!

    The river is waking up!
    Blue Wings and a few more caddis are starting to show up. As flows begin to bump a little bit with the beginning of runoff, bug activity will ramp up, causing the fish to really start feeding.
