The dry fly fishing season’s first hatches are here. The bugs are active and so are the fish.
Blue Wing Olive hatches are steadily moving up the Arkansas River and Colorado and Caddis are also starting to be seen. We are actually only a couple of weeks out from the “Mother” of all Colorado hatches – The Mother’s day Caddis Hatch.
The next few weeks offer some of my favorite fishing as the river and the hatch warms up. The Caddis hatch will start to slowly make it’s way up river from Canyon City. But, this is also a great time to fish the Blue Wing Olive hatch as it also moves up the river. I may even prefer the BWO hatch to the Caddis hatch.
With boats cleaned out and ready to launch and guides chomping at the bit to take you fishing. We are sufficiently geared up and ready to get you on the water. We have been floating the Colorado with some great success and the wade fishing on the Arkansas has been great as well. Spinney Reservoir is also open and the Stillwater fishing has been excellent.
We have a ton of great experiences to offer you. Now is the time to get out and fish, before some options may be out of play with runoff. But, remember we always have somewhere to fish, even during runoff season. With many tailwaters and trophy Stillwater lakes close by. With all of our options, there is never no-where to fish!
