Current Streamflow : Upper Big T at Moraine Park: 115 cfs, Big T above Lake Estes: 275 cfs, Big T Below Lake Estes: 124 cfs



The road is open and the Thompson is coming into shape nicely! Flows have been steady and terrestrials with droppers are starting to fish well. Whether you’re fishing in the park, below Lake Estes, clarity is increasing. Chubbies and PMX's with a caddis larva or Hotwire Prince droper will get it done.  Smaller Sparkle Minnows (#8) and Thin Mints (#8-10) are some good streamer options right now.
