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.
