Weekend Outlook: Colorado Fly Fishing Forecast

Spring is definitely trying to make it’s way into the state and with today being the first day of spring I OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAguess it’s here. According to the weatherman there is a fast moving front bringing snow and rain to the mountains and front range Friday night. Why does crap weather always see m to land on the weekend? Anyway, as far as fishing goes you cannot go wrong by just getting out there. The big midges and BWO’s are hatching, the rainbows are paired up ready to spawn and fish are feeding heavily on a variety of bugs. I have been flirting with the idea of Floating the Blue below Green Mountain Reservoir for the past couple weeks, maybe this will be the weekend I pull the trigger. The flows have been steady around 770 CFS for the last couple weeks and fishing should be great if you can hit a warm day. Or it might suck. As they say you never know until you go.  Look for risers in the afternoon, I have been seeing a lot of fish looking up around 2 o’clock. It might be a fun time to try a Tenkara Rod on skinny water. Hell, it’s Spring get out and go fishing it’s all good.
