Current River Conditions

February 14, 2023

Flows are low on the Roaring Fork and the river is only accessible via wading. Throwing smaller bugs on nymph rigs should pick up lots of eats, as well as streamers. The water moves on this river, so finding the slow seems, runs, and edges can be very productive. The best nymph rig we've found on the Fork is an egg or rubber legs as a lead and running one or two small and flashy nymphs behind it.

Griffith's Gnat, Booty Emerging Midge, Upbeat Baetis, Mini Hot Mayfly
