Fishing Report 4/17


Flow: 110
Rating: Good
Hot Flies: Brook’s Sprout Midge #18-20, Morgan’s Para-Midge #18-20, Palamino Midge #16-18, Flasha Midge #18-20, Light Tan-Shell Pink pigstickers and San JuansBWO’s ARE HERE!!!Details:March was an epic month for those seeking the first consistent surface action in Deckers. The BWO’s have replaced the big midge and fishing has been great above Deckers. Deckers up, best fished with 6-7X. Deckers bridge down 5- 6x are just fine with bigger attractor flies like a high-Viz Griffith’s Knat. Pay attention to the banks as the snow melts. You will notice a lot of worms washing into the river. The lower river is looking ugly as a result of run off from Horse Creek. If your willing to go big and dirty you can still get em!Dream Stream
Flow: 250
Rating: Very Good
Hot Flies: Spicer’s Glue Egg, #12-18 Pigstickers of various colors, #16 Red CritterDetails:Flows just came up to the magic 100 mark last week and just recently cracked 200.  Expect good numbers of fish to push into the dream stream with higher flows, and warmer weather. Likewise, expect the people to flock as fast as the fish.Eagle River
Flow: 250ish in Avon
Rating: Excellent
Hot Flies: Egg’s, #18 Hurricane Midge, and any other Midge in Size #16-18. #14-16 Twenty IncherDetails: Water is getting off color below Walcott, but staying relatively clear above Edwards. Runnoff looks to be coming early this year. Don’t be afraid of the off color water–adjust your fly size, flash, and color schemes accordingly.   All and all an excellent time to be on the Eagle.Other Hot Spots
Colorado: Fishing well from Parshall to State Bridge. BWO patterns working well on the surface, nymphing a #14 prince trailed by a #16-18 Barr’s emerger will keep your rod bent ALL DAY LONG!
