A very nice fall brown trout.
November 21, 2020 (final report for the season)
Winter in these mountains means snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures. Tailwaters can fish year round, but it’s a good time to leave the fish alone where the river temps drop dramatically during the winter months.
Tailwater fishing opportunities include nymphing with small mayfly patterns and midges. Good mayfly nymphs and emergers include Barr’s BWO Emergers, RS2s, and JuJu Baetis in sizes 18 to 22. Midge larva and emerger patterns in various colors, sizes 20 to 24, can be fished through winter.
