To say the Steamboat area is fishing well is an understatement. As the entire Rocky Mountain Region continues too explode with great fishing from almost all of the locations within the FlyCurrents network, I had the pleasure of being stuck in Steamboat for a few days, (what a shame!) For those anglers who think they know it all and don't need to swing into the local shops, don't bother reading any further. Local guides and shop owners will always know more than the average fly-fisher experiencing the area for a few days. Weather you've been to the area before or not, it's always worth your time to swing-in and check out the new patterns and find out what’s working currently in the specific location. Reports coming into the site have been ranging from very-good to excellent in many of the locations. PMD’s, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes, Trico’s, and Caddis to name a few, are all starting to pop with lower water flows and higher water temperatures’ making for some very active and aggressive post run-off feeding trout! This is a great time to hit your favorite location(s), or check out some you’ve never been to! The Pictures above will attest to that! Remember to be courteous/cordial to other anglers on the water! It’s everyone’s day-off except the guides. I’ve always found talking to a fellow angler on a river hooking into fish more than I am results in either some good information, or some of the patterns he or she is using, (or both!) Keep this in mind next time your at a heavily pressured river.
