Fishing the Colorado River should be on everyone’s bucket list. Whether you’re a walk/wade fisherman or prefer float-fishing, this river has it all!
14 Day Forecast: Look for good flows for the remainder of the season. Anglers should prepare themselves for hatches of caddis, blue-winged olives, red quills, and Tricos
Tips and Other Information: The Colorado River is still a fuzz high on the lower stretches, but the upper Colorado is in fantastic shape. Anglers should prepare themselves for hatches of blue-winged olives, caddis, red quills, and Tricos. It’s hard to go wrong with a San Juan Worm trailed by a caddis larva or mayfly nymph. The mosquitoes are still a concern; so make sure you bring plenty of Ben’s Bug Repellent
