FLOW: 1700 cfs in Glenwood Springs
WATER CONDITIONS: Starting to cool off, a bit mossy
OVERALL RATING: 7 out 10
FOOD SOURCES PRESENT: Baetis, Midges, Yellow Sallies, PMDs, caddis, sculpins
THE LOW DOWN: It's been pretty mossy on the Colorado but hopefully we see it dissipate as we start to cool off.
We're still seeing PMDs and caddis out there, and there should be a resurgence of BWOs in the coming weeks as fall temperatures cool us down. Streamer fishing is turning up too!
