Fly Fishing the Roaring Fork, Colorado

Rating: 3/5

Current River Conditions

July 5, 2024

The flows are dropping off right now and the fishing has been great. Plugging the banks with hopper-dropper rigs and streamers have been producing lots of fish. If you're fishing from the banks, attractor nymph rigs have been producing the most fish. Keep an eye out for Green Drakes, they will be hatching at any moment now if they aren't already!
