Report Summary

The Big T is hot and should be on your radar for this weekend. 

FRA Guide Craig King was out yesterday on the Big T and it continues to produce.

“The Big Thompson is hovering at 125 CFS which is a perfect flow for fishing in the Canyon.  Wading access is good and the water isn’t too fast.  Nymphing is the name of the game in the mornings.  Try double nymph rigs suspended under an indicator.  Best flies right now are Bishop’s Dynamite, Soft Hackle Sow Bugs, Poison Tungs, Rainbow Warriors, and Copper Ribbed RS2’s.  If it looks fishy, it probably is.  We found fish in tailouts, deeper pools and pockets, and in the faster water.  The fish are pretty spread out at this flow so work all of the water until you find a trend.  Each afternoon we’ve are starting to see some awesome BWO hatches.  Try parachute BWO patterns, sparke duns, film critics, and mole flies.  They should all pick up fish if you bump into a nice hatch. We should start seeing Caddis here any day as well.”  ~Craig K.
