6/12 Brunch Bunch: All About Float Fishing

For those fishing this weekend:
Run-off is about over and it’s time to start fishing!Deckers:  Good
The water in Deckers has come up quite a bit and there is a lot of silt being pushed around.  As usual, clarity above Deckers is good, below deckers is a little off color.  We fished the lower river the other day and caught plenty of fish even in the off color water.  If the fish can see your fly, they will eat it.  Hot flies this week have been the pink/silver pigsticker, and a large pink SJ Worm.  Rubberlegs, and other golden stone patterns continue to be effective.

Eagle: Good
The Eagle river has dropped drastically and the water has cleared up.  Wade fishing has been very good and the caddis are starting to show up.  When flows drop under 1,000 grab a handful of Pearl and Elk Caddis in #14-18, and X2 caddis in the same size.

Colorado: Good
Flows out of Green Mountain and Williams Fork Res. have been dropped.  The water has cleared up and float trips at pumphouse are hooking up all day long!
