The recent cold weather has locked up a lot water, the best water is closer to the dam. Lead with a MicroMay #14, or soft hackle pheasant tail #16, followed with the reliable Blue Poison Tung, then followed with copper ribbed RS2 #20, or red Jujubaetis #20. Dry action has been good at the inlet to Lake Estes #22 CDC Cluster Midge or Trailing Shuck Midge. The inlet at Fisherman’s Nook is seeing some spawning action. The orange beaded sow bug is an effective pattern.
Mostly iced back up. Fishing quality is spotty.
Lot of open water even with the cold weather. Fly Fisherman can do well with dry pattern like Parachute Adams. Small stocker rainbows are hitting well at Mary’s. Best activity on Lake Estes is near the Big Thompson Inlet and the Power Plant Inlet.
Rocky Mountain National Park:
Very little open water. Action is very slow.
Fly of the Week: Ken& Barbie Doll #24
