Big Thompson River Below Lake Estes:
The fishing continues to be good. Updated 11/25/2015. The Flow is running 45 CFS going into Lake Estes, 21 CFS below Estes and 35 CFS at the mouth of the Canyon, and 5 CFS at Waterdale. There have been very good nymph fishing in the mornings on Micro Mayflies, Blue Poison Tungs, and RS2 Dun. Afternoons you will do well with small midges like Mole Fly. The inlet to Lake Estes fishing is fishing good for rainbows and an occasional nice Brown Trout, use sow bugs and pheasant tails.
