Clarity: Excellent in Silverthorne
14 Day Forecast: Look for intermittent hatches of midges and a sporadic blue winged olive or two
Tips and Other Information: Flows are above their normal historic levels in preparation of 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. Look for the lower river to be influenced by runoff and fishing will be difficult until the river begins to recede.
