Some very interesting reports from the Dream Stream from a friend and from my High Plains Drifters Fly Fishing Club.
From my friend Larry.
Dream Stream Between Spinney Mountain Reservoir and Eleven Mile Reservoir
From a member in High Plains Drifters one day before the previous report.
3 of us landed 19 fish the biggest being in the 25" class well over 6lbs. Very cold but fun day.
at 1:30 it warmed up for a nice dry fly hatch size 22 and 24 bwo. Took 4 that way from the group. Nice to fish on top of the water.
Buckskins, black midges were the flies to use.
One of the guys in the group landed a 33.5" Rainbow out of the Blue last week. On a black midge emerger. 5x florocarbon tippet. Big big fish.
Look to the tailwaters for some good fishing and some open water below the reservoirs. Eleven Mile canyon, Dream Stream, Blue River. Apparently from the reports above, the cold weather is not bothering the fish too much. They are waking up and are hungry.
Spring is here and it is cold in the hills. Most of the lakes are still heavily iced over. Antero still has 40 inches of ice on it and got a foot of snow last week. Eleven Mile is still iced over too. Even Chatfield Reservoir in SW Metro Denver Area is iced over.
Tight Lines and Good Fishing,
