Telluride Dry Flies for Late Summer Flyfishing

Posted on 29 August 2017

The fish in and around Telluride have been very accommodating to fishermen & women.  Trout of all kinds have been crushing dry flies.  Hoppers, late caddis (little bigger size 10, 12), early morning may flies are still putting the bend in fly rods, and one of my favorites the hippie stomper has been putting in work.  Midges have been popping also but the fish seem to want them as a nymph, red and black in size 18, or 20.  As the Telluride days grow shorter streamers have been great also - olive and black are my favorites. The fish can sense the change in season, and are feeding aggressively!  Some of the best fishing of the year happens in September...

Get out and have some fun, be safe, and leave no trace.
