Poudre River Fishing Report:

Winter is on its way, but we are still enjoying the beautiful weather and plentiful fishing opportunities that late fall brings. Get out on the water soon to take advantage of some of the nicest weather we will see for a while! It is now the season to fish small bugs. Not only can this be extremely effective on some of colder days but it's very fun too. We are seeing blue wing olives and midges consistently hatching throughout the canyon and in town. Sizing down is becoming key to success both in town and up the canyon as flows have become low, slow, and clear causing fish to be a bit pickier. We're recommending fishing 5x or 6x monofilament or nylon to the dry and 5x or 6x fluorocarbon to nymphs. Matching the hatch is definitely not the only way to catch fish this time of year though. As the brown trout start to wrap up their spawn they begin to eat as much as possible to keep them suited for winter so fishing streamers is an exciting technique that is particularly effective right now.

Poudre River Fishing Report:

Fall is slowly moving out and it seems that winter is moving in a bit early. Fortunately enough, these are just cold fronts that will be fading away with time. Fishing this time of year may seem challenging but so far we are still seeing water levels rise and fall at the canyon mouth and fish eating anything that comes their way. It is now the season to fish some small bugs as well! Not only can this be extremely effective on some of colder days but it's very fun too.

Poudre River Fishing Report:

Fall is on the way out and it seems that winter is moving in a bit early. Hopefully the fall fishing treated everyone well. Fishing this time of year may become scarce but so far we are still seeing water levels rise and fall at the canyon mouth. The snow we will continue to get will contribute to our spring run off next year. Whip out your small bugs until then. We are seeing blue wing olives and midges consistently hatching throughout the canyon and in town. Sizing down is becoming key to success both in town and up the canyon as flows have become low, slow, and clear causing fish to be a bit pickier. We're recommending fishing 5x or 6x monofilament or nylon to the dry and 5x or 6x fluorocarbon to nymphs. Matching the hatch is definitely not the only way to catch fish this time of year though. Brown trout are particularly hungry and aggressive as they get ready for spawning, so fishing large streamers is an exciting technique to use this time of year.
