The Blue River is a pocket water paradise. There are miles of public water between the town of Silverthorne and Green Mountain Reservoir for you to sample.
14 Day Forecast: Flows are beginning to shape up in town, but they are still very high on the lower river. Anglers should prepare for hatches of PMD’s, Caddis, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes, and sporadic Blue-Winged Olives
Tips and Other Information: Flows remain high from spring run-off! Dillon Reservoir is full to the brim right with the excess flowing over the spillway. In town, a Mysis pattern, red larva, dropped with and assortment of mayfly nymphs are your best bet right now. The lower river is blown out. The fishing on the Blue has been a bit of a disappointment as of late, other options might be a good decision.
