Fishing Report - Rivers and Lakes around Estes Park and RMNP

Big Thompson River Below Lake Estes:

Fishing good for only a couple of miles, we have had a big deep freeze since Christmas.   Lead with a Tungsten Prince #14, or red two bit hooker #16, trailed with a  Zebra Midge #18, and trailed with RS2 Dun #22, or  Jujubaetis #22.  Dry action is minimal but effective when you see risers with #24 Cluster Midge.  Streamers in olive and black will work fished down stream.

 

Big Thompson below Drake:

Mostly iced up with this cold spell, some open areas at the mouth of the canyon.


Mary’s Lake and Lake Estes:

Lot of ice back on Lake Estes, open water at the Power Plant inlet. Floating a pheasant tail or prince with rainbow warrior or Blue Poison tung will produce in the open water..  The inlet at the Big T is good with a Pheasant tail and pink San Juan worm.  Power bait is working in both lakes.


Rocky Mountain National Park:

All iced over!!

 

Fly of the Week:  RS2 Dun #22
