Colorado River – Near Pumphouse

October 1, 2018

Today's Rating:

Flows: 426 c.f.s.

Fishing has been great on the Colorado River in this section recently! With the new lower flows in the Colorado River the river is becoming boney for float fishing but perfect time for wade fishing. These brown are starting to move into their annual fall spawn and becoming hungry and aggressive. Make sure to practice good ethical fall fishing and leaving these browns be if they are spawning on Redd’s. BWO’s are starting to come off strong and PMD’s here and there as well. Lots of big and small Stoneflies in the water. Be aware if it is raining hard the night before be prepared for some runoff and chocolate milk water clarity. Egg patterns should become very effective soon as we move more and more into fall. Try some pats rubber legs and other smaller stone imitations off the bank and in nice slow pockets. Furthermore, don’t be afraid to fish the riffles and fast water behind rocks and drop offs. But mainly drifting the deeper water and slack water with nymph rigs and streamers for hungry wild brown trout. Try streamers especially on the darker days and when it gets a little crappy out. The browns are on the FEED for big meals! Get out there and enjoy the weather! Tight lines!
