Blue (Below Dillon)

Rating: 4/5

Current River Conditions

April 15, 2024

Same old, same old. The Blue below Dillon has had stable flows for quite some time now, so fishing should be similar from day to day. Sight fishing is always the best way to go on the Blue because there's a lot of fishy water that just doesn't hold fish. There hasn't been much activity as far as hatches go aside from midges. Nymphing with three midges has been very productive, but throwing on an egg or small stonefly as a lead has worked as well. Midge dries have been very productive as well in the middle of the day.
