TRIP SUMMARY

The confluence below the Williams Fork inlet is an excellent choice this time of year. With the rest of the Upper Colorado River basin frozen, the influx of warmer water creates ideal fishing conditions. We were able to net a solid amount of fish over only a few hours. Midge hatches were beginning to take off, and eggs were a trout favorite as well. We kept to a simple two fly rig for a majority of the day; an egg followed by a small midge - fished deep and slow. There were no fish to be found in fast water quite yet. A slight warm wether front could easily change that however. Our flies used were: flashtail egg size 16, Barr’s emergent size 22 - cream color. we did not have to change flies much at all. Try it for yourself!
