Current River Flow Updates

Latest Update: 9/14/2020--

Flows below Lake Estes are right around 116 CFS. The T has been fishing great this summer- expect the bite to pick up as we progress into colder temperatures this month. Hopper dropper combos have still been working the best for us lately. Any large foam hopper trailed with a heavy tungsten bead nymph will work wonders. Hippie stompers (#10-14) trailed by a Psyco prince in #14 is a deadly combo. The tailwater section is fairly crowded this time of year so don't limit yourself to just below the dam. Fishing has been excellent at the various public pull offs downstream in the canyon.
