Oct 01 The Blue Quill Angler

Clarity: Excellent

14 Day Forecast: Look for hatches of midges, blue-winged olives, and Tricos

Tips and Other Information:Eleven Mile Canyon is low right now because Denver Water is working on the release-valves. Flows are expected to stay low until the first part of November. Anglers should prepare themselves for technical fishing and hatches of midges, blue-winged olives, and Tricos. Nymphing has been productive in the riffles with Baetis nymphs, midge larvae, and pupae, and the dry fly fishing has been good in the slower pools and tailouts with midge adults, blue-winged olives, and Trico spinners. Well keep you posted as conditions change on the maintenance projects.

Effective Patterns: #20-22 Chocolate Foam Wing Emerger, #20-22 JujuBaetis, #22 Stalcups Baetis, #20 Mitchells Split Case BWO, #20-22 Mercury Flashback PT, #20-22 Sparkle Wing RS 2, #20-22 Mathews Sparkle Dun, #20 Matts Midge, #22-24 Stalcups CDC Biot Trico Comparadun, and #20-24 Parachute Adams.
