Vail Valley Fishing Reports

Eagle River

With the change in weather, fishing has been predictably good right before the storm. Look for incoming snow and plan to get out the day or two before it. Fish know the deal and can feel it comin’ so do their best to fatten up. Midges and beads are the most productive things to be throwing right now and the fish have been almost 50/50 on the midge/bead. Private water is still open so check here or below on an awesome deal we’ve got going this Winter!
Gore Creek 

Think outside the box and fish blue and purple flies on Gore Creek. Whether it’s blue midges or purple juju baetis, make sure you have those shades in your box! Ice is beginning to form so please be careful on the river banks and wear studs in your rubber bottom wading boots to avoid snow build up and slippage.

Upper Colorado River

The parking areas are still open… for now. Keep in touch with your friends at the Minturn shop for access and updates. Fishing has been good for those who have braved the weather. Safety always comes first so make sure you are in good shape and ability to brave the weather and water.

This week’s theme is “Local Swing Patterns” and will be guest hosted by Minturn Anglers guide, Ty Clifton! It’s time to pull out those tiny hooks, fine wire and light threads!Ty is a Scott Rods Pro and reknowned two-handed fisherman. Ty has been tying as long as he has been fishing which is longer than he would like to admit. When he isn’t guiding in Colorado you can find him fun fishing or out with clients swinging up Steelhead in Idaho.
