Big Thompson River Below Lake Estes:
The River is fishing good, the flow is steady out of the dam. Updated 8/19/2015. The Flow is running 99 CFS going into Lake Estes, 98 CFS below Estes and 111 CFS at the mouth of the Canyon. There have been nice Yellow Sallie and Green Drake hatches on the Thompson. Subsurface try Micro May followed by Rainbow Warrior. Trailed with a Tan Sow Bug. The inlet to Lake Estes fishing is still fishing good, fish with and oregon cheese egg fly and a beaded Prince Nymph pr soft hackle pheasant tail. Try the Evening Hatch trip for a couple hours of some good dry fly action!
