Fishing Report July 16 2016

Fishing report 7/16/2016
It been a busy few weeks here at the shop. I want to thank everyone that has come by and bought flies and taken our guides trips. The fishing has continued to be very productive. I was out this morning and the lower river was still pretty buggy. We caught several fish on royal stimmies as a Pine Moth Hatch was underway. The lower river has begun to transition back to small stonefly nymphs and baetis nymphs. The river from the south fork up to Platoro has been fishing very good. We are seeing golden stones and several types of mayflies. The Green Drakes have been a little elusive as the hatch moved up river. They seem to be hatching late in the day so evening fishing in the meadow has been good. Give us a call or stop by if we can help picking out some bugs. Call now for Cabin rentals or guide trips. 719-376-5660.

6/24/16 The Conejos is fishing good. The lower river is really buggy with Mayflies, Caddis and stoneflies. The window for dries has been narrow in the early morning but this will improve drastically this week. The meadow fished well today with midges, wire worms, bwo nymphs and rainbow warriors. We should start seeing better mayfly hatches in the meadow soon. If you have waited to fish the Los Pinos don't wait any longer. If we can help with guides, cabin rentals give us a call.

Fishing Report 6-13-16

Fishing Report - 6/13/2016 Well it's about time I give a little update on the river conditions. It looks like the peak runoff occurred the first of last week. We will continue to see the Conejos slowly drop through the summer. Each day the water clarity will slowly improve as the flow slowly come down over the next couple weeks. Wading will be limited to the edges until the flow comes down to 400 cfs at Mogote around the first of July. The big stoneflies are just about to start flying later this week. Big stimulator pattern will be the on the menu. The meadow section below Platoro is fishing great. Baetis emeger and nymphs have been the go to patterns but will see better surface action anytime now. The Los Pinos is quickly coming into shape. We've had great trips on the Los Pinos and the La Jara. Stop by and pick up some of the new patterns we have in the shop. Call for guide trips and cabin rentals. The dry fly season is upon us. Thanks

Conejos River Fishing report
7/31/2015 The river above the South Fork has been fishing well. The meadow below Platoro, Colorado yesterday on fire with Drakes, Adams superflys and BWO patterns from mid morning until mid afternoon. The pocket water has been mostly dries as well. If you want to catch fish on the surface I'd come up.

Here are some pictures of happy fishermen over the last few weeks.
