Oct 08 The Blue Quill Angler

Clarity: Excellent

14 Day Forecast: Flows are perfect throughout the Blue River corridor. Anglers should prepare for hatches of midges and blue-winged olives

Tips and Other Information: Flows are perfect from Silverthorn to Green Mountain Reservoir. In town, a Mysis pattern, red larva, dropped with and assortment of mayfly nymphs are your best bet. The lower river looks great, but fishing is difficult at best. Plan on working hard for a few fish, but the scenery and fishing is not shabby. As they say, its fishing not catching, so a day in Summit County is never a bad thing to beat the crowds. Make no mistake about it though fishing on the Blue River has been a bit of a disappointment as of late

Effective Patterns: #20-22 Juju Baetis, #20-22 Chocolate Foam Wing Emerger, #22 Stalcups Baetis, #20-22 Mercury Midge, #18 Barr Emerger, #20-22 Sparkle Wing RS 2, #14 San Juan Worm, #20 Sparkle Dun, and #20 Parachute Adams.
