Laramie River Report
Current Stream Flow: 500 cfs @ Laramie
Laramie Fishing Report:
The Laramie, like many of our other local waters, is starting to show the first signs of runoff. With flows climbing, the flies we’re reaching for are similarly increasing, in both size and flashiness. Think about attractor nymphs such as Bead Head Princes (# 10-12), Sparkle Worms, Montana Princes (#12-14) and Girdle Bugs (#8-12). Shorten up your leaders and strengthen your tippet as well!
Streamers are another good way to prospect in high-water conditions. Use a stout length of heavy tippet (Maxima Ultragreen or 1x-2x) in lieu of a leader and make sure you’ve got some split-shot for deeper holes. Now is a great time to use larger patterns and high-contrast colors (i.e. black or white). We’ve been liking Sparkle Minnows, JJ’s Specials, and Tequeelies lately ourselves.
