Upper Colorado River can look almost like August

The word is out so weekend warriors take heed. Shoot for early starts on the Upper C right now as it can look almost like August with the incredible weather we are experiencing. Regardless of the people, the fishing remains very productive with bigger bugs on the menu for the fishies. Big pheasant tail nymphs, Pat’s Rubber Legs, Copper Johns and Hare’s Ears should be included in any tandem nymph rig. Streamers can be hit or miss so switch the flies often, vary your depth and vary your retrieve. The water is still pretty cold when all is said and done. Focus on the evening if you’re trying to trick a fish with a dry fly. They are rising but mostly later in the day and in small numbers. Focus on the swirling back eddies with tiny dries trailing tinier emergers.
