Current Streamflow : Big T Below Lake Estes: 37 cfs



Spring finally seems like its here to stay. Warmer days with abundant sunshine have really started to get the fish hungry. We have been getting some reports of good midge hatches and even some BWO's popping off, so bring some small dry flies just in case. When the bugs aren't hatching the nymphing has been an effective way to catch fish. Some good Nymph options include Two-Bit Hookers in Olive and Red (#16,18), Rainbow Warriors (#18,20), Juju Midge (#20-22), and Rojo Midge (#20-22) and some small midge dries like an Eric's HiVis Midge (#20-22) or Sprout Midge (#20-24).
