The warm weather has melted a lot of the ice in the more exposed areas. The coming week will offer more good fishing as the temperatures will remain above freezing during the days.

Concentrate on smaller flies, worms, attractors and egg patterns.

River flows are at typical Fall levels, but floating is still good. Levels are excellent for wading. Summer beatis are active, along with a few caddis, and Hoppers. Nymphing generally has been most sucessful followed by streamers on cloudy days. Dry fly fishing is still around, late evening and cloudy days will be best. Hoppers, small mayfly adults on light leaders and caddis in the evening.

We check the river daily and our guides are fishing it if they can, give us a quick call for updated info before heading our direction. Call us for the most current conditions or stop by to find out more before floating or wading.

Flies:

Dries: 16-20 adams, para adams, royal wulff, red quill, 14-18 elk hair caddis, ginger varient, lots of different hoppers.
Nymphs: 18-20 mayhem, two bid hooker, RS2, PTs of all sorts, Prince, Pats, FFKA, Copper Johns, Eggs, GB Epoxy Stone
Streamers:2-8's color is variable! you need to experiment.

Roaring Fork

Current Flow: near Emma - 602cfs (if you want more uptodate figures check out current readings on our "Links" page).

The rain this week has pushed the flows up a little in the Fork making the floating in rafts from Basalt a little easier. The fishing is excellent as the pressure had dropped off and the cooler water and conditions has made for good floating all the way to Glenwood.

The best results are from nymphing and the best nymph patterns are getting smaller. The conditions are also good on the Fork now higher up. Concentrate on small flies.

Try small baetis such as the FPA Sparkle Baetis, the FPA Thorax Emerger, and black pheasant tails have also worked well. For emergers, the rs2 in black or gray. Also the sparkle wing rs2.

For small flies, copper johns, pc phlash, mercury rs2's, pheasant tails, bubble back bwos.

For the stone fly nymphs good patterns continue to include the BB FB Epoxy 20 Incher, the BTB Hot Spot 20 Incher and the CTB RL Epoxy 20 Incher. Also try drake nymphs such as the FPA Nymph, or the poxyback. For variety try the muskrat as well.

Try streamers.
