Aug 07 The Blue Quill Angler

Clarity: Excellent

14 Day Forecast: Flows are beginning to shape up in town, but they are still very high on the lower river. Anglers should prepare for hatches of PMDs, Caddis, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes, and sporadic Blue-Winged Olives

Tips and Other Information: Flows remain high from spring run-off! Dillon Reservoir is full to the brim right with the excess flowing over the spillway. In town, a Mysis pattern, red larva, dropped with and assortment of mayfly nymphs are your best bet right now. The lower river is blown out. The fishing on the Blue has been a bit of a disappointment as of late, other options might be a good decision.

Effective Patterns: #20 Juju Baetis, #20 Choc Foam Wing Emerger, #10 Pats Rubber Legs, #22 Stalcups Baetis, #20-22 Mercury Midge, #20-22 Manhattan Midge, #12 Hares Ear, #16 Bead Head Breadcrust, #18 Barr Emerger, #20 Sparkle Wing RS 2, #16 Caddis, #14 Yellow Stimulator, #16 PMD, #20 Parachute Adams.
