Big Snow Fall Thursday and Friday of about 2 feet, lot has melted already.  The River is fishing great, a little off color from the runoff.  Shawn Hart landed about30 below the dam on mole fly!  In addition to the mole fly the trailing shuck midge and small BWO’s have been working on the surface.  The nymphing setups include Tungsten Micro Mayfly, and Soft Hackle Pheasant tail followed by Blue Poison Tung, Rainbow Warrior, and Red Two Bit Hooker. Trail with a Copper Ribbed RS2, RS2 Dun or Sow Bug.  The inlet to Lake Estes has been good with Micro Mayfly followed by a zebra midge or an orange egg fly.
