Happy first week of Spring! The weather is really starting to heat up as we head into the early season. The main difference between March and last month is that now most of the Yampa through town is fully accessible. We have had enough consistent warm weather in the last few weeks that the Yampa from top access of town to bottom access of town is completely open. In some areas the river might have a little bit of shelf ice on the banks, but other than that it’s completely cleared for fishing. In the morning there also could be slush,...

These smaller flies match the insects trout feed on at this time of year. Dry fly...

The conditions of the waters in the Yampa Valley are subject to change day to day and we are currently monitoring the conditions. We will keep everyone updated as the announcements come in.The Yampa and Elk are both in midsummer form with fish eagerly eating hoppers and other terrestrials while still capitalizing on the spattering of hatches we are seeing. There are still some early summer Pale Morning Duns and Yellow Sallies hatching. Caddis are coming off in good numbers as well. Even where fish are not actively rising, these three flies have been presenting  well in likely holding water have...
