Fishing and Catching is on Fire!
Posted on 10 August 2016
Fly fishing in Telluride and right now is on fire! The rivers are still running low and clear which is making the dry fly fishing and catching awesome! The upper San Miguel and Dolores Rivers are seeing a lot of top water action on the Royal Wulff, Lime Trude, tan and olive Schroeder Parachute Hopper, Sweet Grass Hopper as well as the Yellow and Crystal Stimulator. Afternoon monsoon showers are continuing to bring in sporadic rain that is cooling the rivers and keeping the fish active on a lot of the smaller rivers such as Leopard Creek, West Fork, Coal Creek, Barlow Creek, Bear Creek and Fish Creek. Happen to be interested interested in a chance at trophy fish, check out The State Wildlife Area tail water, Lone Dome or Ridgway State Park's tail water, Pa-co-Chu-Puk! Set up a Nymph rig with midges and emergers like the Mayhem size 20 or smaller. Find yourself at a high country lake? Alta Lakes, Trout Lake, Priest Lake, Woods Lake or Miramonte Reservior, no problem, Tie on a tungsten bead Prince Nymph size 14 or 16 and strip in slowly. Bam! They Seem to love those as well as Olive or Rust Colored Wooly Buggers and Slump Busters. For top water action try Parachute Adams Size 18 or Griffiths Gnat, Mosquito or BWO. Lower Miguel Below Silver Pick Road had more mudslides last week and the CDOT and County workers Really got it cleaned up nice so the lower San Miguel is once again fishing really well!
