Apr 16 The Blue Quill Angler

Clarity: Excellent in Silverthorne

14 Day Forecast: Look for intermittent hatches of midges.

Tips and Other Information: Flows are at their normal historic levels for this time of year. I suspect, with above average snowpack, Denver Water will begin to ramp up outflows to prepare for a huge run off. In town, a Mysis pattern, red larva, dropped with and assortment of mayfly nymphs are your best bet right now. Fishing overall on the Blue River has been a disappointment as of late, as the number of trout are way down. Your best bet is to fish in town and sight fish to increase your odds of hooking fish. Anglers who are blind fishing are not enjoying much success

Effective Patterns: #20-22 Mercury Midge, #20-22 Manhattan Midge, #20 Pale Olive Midge Larva, #22-24 Black Beauty, #22-24 Bling Midge, #22-24 Top Secret Midge, #22-24 Minute Midge, #22-24 Jujubee Midge, #22-24 Matts Midge, #22-24 Griffith Gnat, and #24-26 Parachute Adams.
