Fly-Fishing guide: River report for Labor Day weekend

Do not overlook throwing streamers in the evening to turn some larger fish. As the nights get cooler, fish will start to be more active and hatches will slow down, so nymphing may become more effective as the seasons change.
Special to the Daily |

Fishing has been great! Flows are coming down and the brown trout have started to move a bit. Overall, the Colorado has been fishing well, RS2’s, Zebra Midges and small natural Pheasant Tails have been working to pull some of those larger fish. Be observant of hatches to throw dry flies in the morning and evening. Nymphing has been effective when fishing tailwaters. Do not overlook throwing streamers in the evening to turn some larger fish. As the nights get cooler, fish will start to be more active and hatches will slow down, so nymphing may become more effective as the seasons change. Tight lines!
