Location: Big Thompson tailwater
Flies used: sz20 Bionic Ant tan/red, sz16 yellow/tan chubby chernobyl, sz18 yellow Stubby Chubby, sz18 split back PMD, sz20 jig zebra midge tan
Fishing Conditions: Water was low and clear with a slight stain (possibly from the rain the night before). WE got on the water early at 7:30am with a water temp at 61. Fished using 5x and 6x tippet and had several rises to the dry. As water warmed we focused our efforts in the faster riffles and runs in the shade. When we got off the water at 11:30 the temp was already up to 66/67 degrees. Fish it early and keep the fish wet.
