Eagle River

You’ll read more about this later but right now is about as good as it gets! Name your bug – caddis, mayfly, yellow sallies, yellow stones, midges terrestrials… all comin’ off simultaneously. If you like to fish dry flies, get in the darn car and come on up. The Eagle River continues to be FLOATABLE but we don’t know how long this will last. Fish the Eagle River now!
This is the perfect time of year to fish the creeks in the Vail Valley. Dry-dropper all day long while wearing your lanyard and wading boots? Uh yeah. Cover lot’s of water, catch lot’s of fish. Splat small hoppers, ants and beetles. Foam is ideal for floating Copper Johns and Prince Nymphs as well as Swing Caddis below your dry. Fish the Eagle by day and the creeks by dusk. It’s stupid good.
Colorado River 
Droppin’ like a stone daily! We’ve been guiding up there daily and the big brown trout are on the feed. You can pull the trifecta – dry, nymph and streamer and be confident in all approaches. Best stretches for those floating on your own are Pumphouse to Radium, Radium to Rancho and Rancho to State Bridge.

Eagle River Dry Fly Bonanza!

When a river is fishing this good, it deserves it’s own spot in the weekly email
The Eagle River might be the best river in the state right now. We are currently experiencing the best dry fly action of the year and it continues to improve with current flows and steady temps. Fish are being found from back eddies to fast currents and every one of them wants to poke their nose out of the water. The bug activity is non-stop all day starting with midges in the early morning, caddis, yellow sallies and terrestrials until the afternoon BWO’s  and PMDs; then a caddis night cap if the fish didn’t get enough to eat all day. We have clients who have never had so much action on the dry fly thanking our guides profusely. Load up on your floatant and leave the fluorocarbon at home. It’s dry fly time boys and girls and the fish are active! Get on up to the mountains if you aren’t here already and book a trip on private water with one of our knowledgeable fly fishing guides. 20″ fish are being hooked and landed regularly on the dry! Stop following bobbers all day, pick up your presentation rod and get your butt on the Eagle River!
