Current Streamflow : Big T Below Lake Estes: 26 cfs



The road is open and the Thompson has been fishing nicely! Flows are steady and the river is fishing well.  Some good Nymphing options include Two-Bit Hookers in Olive and Red (#16,18), Rainbow Warriors (#18,20).  Some small emergers like an RS2 or Juju Baetis are good to have on hand for hatches.  Fall time is also streamer time to find those larger fish.  Sparkle Minnows (#8), Thin Mints (#8-10) and Mini Dungeons (#6) are some good streamer options right now.
