October 2, 2022

THE LOWDOWN: All voluntary closures have been lifted, and the fish thank you for giving them a break during the dog-days of summer.

The Colorado has been brown most of the summer anyway, but we'll hopefully see some green instead of brown after some chilly nights.

We've now done a few exploratory missions out there, it has remained off-color and the fishing was marginal at best.

HINTS: We may need to patient with the Colorado, the visibility has been next to nothing as of late.
