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
