Happy Halloween to all you spooky anglers out there. Where you fly fishing this weekend?
Winter might rear it ugly head for a couple days this weekend so staying close to the front range might be the better fly fishing choice. Arkansas River Fly Fishing Reports have been rock solid with a lot of Blue Winged Olive activity near Salida and South. Flows are low and clear but the Brown Trout are real aggressive chowing BWO’s and streamers. If you go try nymphing with a bead head prospecting nymph like a pheasant tail or prince then trail a BWO or midge emerger behind. This has been a good set-up during the cooler parts of the day. Once the water warms expect to see the fish get a bit more aggressive. This is a good time to start head hunting with dries or move streamers through pocket water. Saturday is supposed to be the better weather day so get out and enjoy before everything turns to midging under a bobber. Hot patterns to have would be sparkle wing RS2, Barrs BWO emerged, Small Black Sculpzilla and Natural Slump Buster.
