Big Thompson River, Estes Park to Loveland: 210 cfs

Open water from the dam down, flows starting to rise. Dirty water below Drake still fishing slow.  From Drake up to Olympus Dam flows are cleaner,  with better visibility. Smaller tippet (4/5x)Flows are hit and miss, up then down. Target pockets and pools. Speed is king... Feel free to go big, Chubbies and a Pats rubber leg in size 10s and 12s have been getting good action. Leeches, Thin Mints, and big Junk flies are a good bet. 

Poudre River: @ Gateway 227 cfs,  Everything else is dirty and big.

Gateway is fishing well, big dries, stone flies and worms.

  (#18-20 CDC Pheasant Tail, #18-22 Blue or Purple Poison tung., #20-24 Grey and copper ribbed Rs-2, By the dam. If you are fishing in town strip some meat, woolly buggers, crayfish, leeches). Have fun, be safe & kind.
