Colorado Trout Fishing Report from Sheephorn Ranch May 14, 2007

Date: May 14, 2007

Location: Sheephorn Ranch

Number of Anglers: 2

Guide: Tad Howard

Weather: Very nice; sunny, with temps in the upper 60’s.

River Condition: Water temps in the mid 40’s.  Water has about 3-4 feet of visibility.

Fishing was excellent. Beautiful day, fun fishermen and cooperative trout.  We caught fish on a variety of flies including dry flies, nymphs, and streamers.  The trout seemed to be most active during a mid-day midge hatch, but fed consistently through the day.

The rivers have been good but high due to the run-off. Lake fishing can offer a great alternative.  With several great stillwater fisheries as well as access to many tailwaters, we should have very good fly fishing trips available through the high water season.
