Rio Grande River, Colorado - Fishing Report - 10/14/18
Stream levels are still a little low but still in good shape. Fish the middle and
lower elevations. We received several good reports from anglers fishing this
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is snow through today and again Tuesday
and Wednesday, for the coming week.. High temperatures will range from 39 to
47 degrees and lows from 14 to 27 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
Spotted sedges, (caddisflies) size 14, 16, lava, pupa and adults
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
October Caddis, size 6, larva 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.
Spotted Sedges are hatching.
Black and olive Matuka sculpin streamers are also working good.
October Caddis are still hatching.
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
