May 23 Royal Gorge Anglers

General Overview

The inflow to Spinney is in runoff mode now, and will continue for some time. This is simply not the most optimal time of year to fish this section simply due to the conditions.

Stream Conditions

Flowrate above Spinney Reservoir: 213 cfs

Clarity: Stained

Suggested Methods

The spring window features strong Pseudo Baetis (Fall BWO) activity and a continuation of Midge presence throughout the lifecycle. Be prepared with the nymph, emerger and adult categories of the aforementioned bugs, and a few attractor nymphs (Egg Patterns, Micro-Worms, Leeches, etc). Also, streamers can be especially effective if you're able to cover water.
