The trout have been biting on light terminal tackle, fished with various Power Baits. Spoons and Rapalas have also been a hit due to the amount of baitfish in the tailwaters. Fly-fishermen are still catching good numbers on the water as are the bait fishermen. For fly-fishing, nymphs and midges are working well along with white or olive PJ Jigs. Good lures are gold and silver Colorado Spoons, red and gold Buoyant Spoons, Flicker Shad in Pro Series Nos. 4 and 5. Good baits are white, sunrise, chartreuse, yellow, or rainbow Power Bait tipped with waxworms, while nightcrawlers are selling like hot cakes. (That’s an indication that they are working well!) Good flies are pheasant tails #14; midges in blue dun #16, black #16, olive #16; hare’s ear #14; tungsten Copper Johns #14; WD 40s #18; and San Juan worms #12. Always be attentive to rising water conditions.
