Vail Valley Fishing Reports

Eagle River

The gem of the Vail Valley continues to produce with great weather to help the fishing coming up this week. Temps will be in the 40’s the next six days so if you can sneak away, head to the mountains. A big “Guide’s Choice” followed by a midge or a egg/bead has been putting smiles on many fishermen’s faces. The rainbows have been hibernating of late but the brown bite has been phenomenal especially on our private water! Stay in touch as the Eagle might be floatable this week.
Gore Creek 

For best results, head to Lions Head but be prepared for skier traffic. The banks are lined with snow so please be careful but if you’re willing to give it a go, tie on a selection of midges and have fun because the fishing is good.

Lower Colorado River

The Lower Colorado River has been fishing surprisingly well with rising fish through the afternoons. The typical midge bite is on and rising fish can be found in tailouts and back eddies. Give it a whirl!
