Red Feather Lake Area

Over the last several days I’ve been fishing the Red Feather Lakes.  The daytime weather was a little windy and overcast but the fishing was reasonably good.  A two fly rig on a 12-foot leader (the lakes are all shallow) retrieved very slowly produced the most daytime consistent results.  I used a Teardrop nymph (see below) in a gold shade for the trailer attached to a a size 6 Jimmy Legs Stonefly nymph in brown and burnished orange (we stock them).  Evening midge hatches were good when the wind stopped. – size 22 black midge 20-inches behind a size 14 Humpy did the trick.
