We started out at the inlet of Lake Estes in the am. It was a very busy weekend around the Estes area with the holiday weekend. We were able to get a couple of decent spots to fish around the inlet on the big t. My group of anglers I had set up with nymph rigs that used San Juan worms, eggs as attractors and Barr emergers, and Rs2s as trailers in sizes 16-20. The action in one particular spot was pretty good and we hooked quite a few fish. The fish were taking all of the flies, but the majority of the fish were taking the eggs and emergers. The flows were tricky at over 400cfs, but we weighted up and found fish in the slowest places in the river. We had a solid morning there but after lunch, we wanted to fish where there weren’t as many people.
