Big Thompson River Report
Current Streamflow : Upper Big T at Moraine Park: 19 cfs, Big T above Lake Estes: 48 cfs, Big T Below Lake Estes: 50 cfs
The road is open and the Thompson has been fishing nicely! Flows have been steady and terrestrials with droppers are fishing well. Chubby Chernobyl's, PMX's, and your favorite Beetles, work great as the dry in a hopper dropper rig. Place poxyback PMDs, rainbow warriors, yellow sally nymphs, or RS2's underneath to complete the dry dropper rig. Smaller Sparkle Minnows (#8) and Thin Mints (#8-10) are some good streamer options right now and smaller dries like Parachute Adams, yellow sallies, and caddis, can produce some of those bigger and pickier fish.
