Jun 25 The Blue Quill Angler

Clarity: Poor

Major Food Organisms: Caddis

Conditions: Full run-off tight now so fishing the edges right now with dry-dropper rigs or a Euro setup will produce fish. For some fun get out the junk flies and have a blast. Please be careful when fishing this river as it is really moving.

Suggested Patterns: Any jigged Euro Nymph right now will work as long as it is heavy, Jigged Squirmys, Mop flies, Chubby Chernobyls, Amys Ant or any other large dry fly you can see

Jun 18 The Blue Quill Angler

Clarity: Poor

Major Food Organisms: Caddis

Conditions: Water is beginning to rise with the onset of run-off so fishing the edges right now with dry-dropper rigs or a Euro setup will produce fish. When the water really gets going, get out the junk flies and have a blast. Fish are not picky right now so get out and have some fun before the run-off and rafters really get going

Suggested Patterns: Any jigged Euro Nymph right now will work as long as it is heavy, Jigged Squirmys, Mop flies, Chubby Chernobyls, Amys Ant or any other large dry fly you can see

Jun 09 FlyCast River Forecast

Technicality: 2/5

Flows continue to rise making for tricky fishing and poor water clarity. While the river is not blown out, you'll have a tough time seeing fish. As such, bigger bugs and flashy flies will be the most effective. The double and triple nymph rig will treat you well, but make sure you are using plenty of weight. Lead with a larger attractor pattern like a Flashback Pheasant Tail or red/green Copper John followed by smaller attractor flies like a Rainbow Warrior or Flashback Black Beauty. Target the banks and the slower moving runs and pools for the best results. The dry dropper will still be a good option, but will be less effective than the nymph rig.

Ideal Days To Fish: Thursday, Saturday & Sunday

Suggested Flies:

Sub-surface: Prince Nymph (#16-20), Pheasant Tail (#16-20), Copper John (#16-20), Rainbow Warrior (#18-20), Zebra Midge (black/red #18-22), San Juan Worm (#10-14).

Surface: Elk Hair Caddis (#16-18), Chubby Chernobyl (#10-12), Amy's Ant (#10-14), Parachute Adams (#20 - #22)
