Colorado River – Near Parshall

October 1, 2018

Today's Rating:

Flows: 142 c.f.s.

The clarity is crystal clear with low water this time of the year in the section of the Colorado River. With the water at the Williams Fork River holding at 50.7 cfs this water will continue to drop in flows into the Fall season. Very manageable to wade fish now and bugs are starting to emerge everywhere. Caddis, PMD, and blue winged olives are popping off. Try fishing the banks with Hopper- Dropper set ups. Nymphing the deeper pockets of the river will be the best fishing at the moment. As we approach fall the browns will become hungry and aggressive to fatten up for the spawn. Using red midges are becoming successful and egg patterns should start to be the ticket on the Colorado River very soon. Also, try some streamers as well this time of the year that can be the ticket to some big fish! Have fun out there!
