Rio Grande River, Colorado - Fishing Report - 02/18/19
Stream levels are up in good shape. Fish the middle and lower elevations.
There are still some good hatches of winter stoneflies and midges taking place.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is chance of snow everyday this coming
week but Wendesday. High temperatures will range from 19 to 22 degrees and
lows from -7 to 9 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies: (we will revise this list next week)
Blue-winged Olives, size 16 and 18, nymphs, emergers, duns and spinners
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin, size 4/6
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Winter Stoneflies, size 16/18, nymphs and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
Blue-winged Olives are hatching.
Brown Sculpin and the White Belly Sculpin streamers are flies you don't want to be
caught short on.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
Black and olive Matuka sculpin streamers are also working good.
We still think the best strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish
the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface
